For those who don’t know about FarmAbility, here is an extract from their website that explains what they do:
FarmAbility is a farm-based programme for co-farmers, who are people over the age of 18 with learning disabilities and often also with autistic spectrum disorder. The programme runs 5 days a week (Monday to Friday), 50 weeks in the year (we close for a fortnight around Christmas and New Year). we also work with post 16 education settings to support students aged 16-19.
FarmAbility also offers co-farmers the chance to visit other farms and growing spaces around the county through our outreach partnerships. Co-farmers are able to try their hand at new activities at dairy farms, market gardens, community growing spaces and woodlands.
