Social Farms & Gardens
Social Farms & Gardens is a UK wide charity supporting communities to farm, garden and grow together.
We advocate and campaign for greater recognition, funding and opportunities for nature-based activities. We present a united voice for organisations and groups delivering nature-based activities. We influence policy makers and work with partners in the voluntary, public, private and academic sectors to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and the environment.
We also manage 'Growing Care Farming', part of the Government Program for Children & Nature (supported by Defra, is funded by the Department of Education and managed by Natural England). Growing Care Farming is an excellent opportunity to transform the scale of the care farming sector across England, creating more opportunities for children and adults with a defined need to benefit from specialist health, care and educational services provided on care farms.
