SweetTree Farming For All's mission is to make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable people who are experiencing social or educational exclusion, by providing meaningful experiences in a natural environment, and to help them grow to become confident, well balanced individuals who are socially included.
The SweetTree Farming For All team have the experience and skills to work with children, adults and older people with a variety of care and support needs including learning disabilities, mental health issues, dementia, physical disabilities, offending histories, educational exclusion and alcohol/substance dependencies.
Participants can join in with an existing farming or horticultural project such as Dig Deep or SweetTree Fields Farm, a 14 acre site in North West London or interested parties can become a ‘partner’ to deliver a new community based project. SweetTree Farming For All encourages and enables participants to positively engage in the great outdoors through farming, horticulture and other outdoor activities. Each project is designed to inspire, educate and engage clients in regular routine and in the great outdoors.
They provide guided activities and training at allotment, farm, outdoor or educational sites for adults and young people. Typical activities include livestock farming, horticulture, bush crafts, horsemanship, falconry, conservation, eco and nature crafts, Forest Schools and cooking. Activities can be curriculum linked and they also offer City and Guilds accredited horticultural training on a long term basis.
