We have done hundreds and possibly thousands of previous projects so the list on this page is an attempt at a representative cross section.

 

Yurt Building Course.

A film of our week long yurt building course with young people. The 23foot yurt that was made during this week is now used at many of our events and gatherings.

WHAT WE HAVE DONE IN THE PAST….. We have completed a number of projects at the farm, these include:-

The Eco Extreme Kids Camp-to help break down social barriers between teenage gangs.

Millennium Volunteers project. The design, fundraising for and build of Merlin’s Way-disabled accessible woodland walk and sensory garden, a project designed by local teenagers, for the benefit of the whole community.

On Yer Bike- recycling push bikes project.

Walkabout teenage theatre team workshop and rehearsal studio for Glastonbury Festival.

Working with teenagers on work experience, to provide a children’s play area at festivals and community events.

Project managers training course for local teenagers.

Travellers Aid Trust outdoor events training programme for young travellers.

The creation of Circus Camp Cymru.

The manifestation of Women’s Retreats Wales.

The designing, fundraising for, and building of a forest garden permaculture site.

Providing activities in the woods to Princes Youth Trust and local youth offending teams.

Work experience for under 25’s, and references where appropriate.

‘Big Time’ inner city youth projects with the St Paul’s Full Circle Project.

The Party With a Purpose Project, which redesigned a local skate park, hosted a “half pipe” in the barns and designed a woodland walk with local teenagers, and also supported and empowered numerous other,local youth led initiatives.

These activities have, by all accounts, empowered teenagers and families to go onto brighter futures, where they have re-engaged with their communities, RE entered education and been helped towards employment. We often get visits from the “old” youth to see how THEIR project is still doing.
