PRISM Youth Project

City Farm Project

PRISM City Farm is a community, environmental and educational project which offers young people aged 12-21 the opportunity to manage the day-to-day running of an inner city farm.

The young people are engaged in looking after the animals and their welfare, whilst ensuring the land is maintained and developed.

There are many other opportunities such as dry stone walling, crop/plant growth and poly - tunnels. All work is accredited with Open College Network, OCR NVQs and Youth Train.

The farm has an excellent history of engaging socially excluded young people, those excluded from school, at risk of offending and those who may choose it as a career path.

Thursday 28th April 2011 - 10.30am ‘til 3pm

The opening of our new Small Animal House, Duck Pond and ‘Local Foods’ Farm Shop was a great success!

Visitors saw all our large farm animals, and new arrivals including reptiles, aviary birds and degus and had family fun at our free sideshows and games. They learnt about growing and eating healthy seasonal produce in our poly-tunnels and Local Foods shop, as well as finding out how schools and community groups can join in with the farm’s work.

The Open Day was also be a chance to talk to staff, students and volunteers about the health and wellbeing benefits that can be achieved by volunteering with our Breathing Spaces or Local Foods projects.
