Greave House Farm Trust would like to invite you to their Open Morning on Saturday 13th April from 10am onwards in Stocksbridge.

Greave House Farm Trust is a care farm which is a small holding providing therapeutic meaningful work activities for vulnerable people with learning disabilities and / or mental health problems.  The “Day Workers” will be growing fruit and vegetables, looking after chickens and raising animals.  This will be a welcoming place “where everyone can grow.”

The farm aims to provide a warm welcome, a sense of community and belonging,  and to nurture a sense of well-being and self esteem. Research has shown that by enjoying activities such as growing food, looking after animals and learning creative crafts we begin to feel good about ourselves and those around us.

This is primarily for Support Planners and potential Day Workers to find out what they get up to and what kind of jobs are available, but anyone interested in finding out more is welcome to come along.  It’s their usual monthly work day so there will be volunteers around, doing whatever jobs need doing.  One job will be planting the fruit trees that people bought as Christmas presents for friends and family and in memory of loved ones.  Volunteers will be hard at work planting trees, sowing seeds, cleaning chickens out and much more.

Lunch will be served at 1pm and if you’d like to join them for lunch please let them know in advance.  Please email to book:  greavehouse@yahoo.co.uk or phone Barbara on 07924505911.  The address of the event is New Hall Lane, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, S36 4GH.
