Growing Care Farming Project: Care Farming Awareness Day (Thirsk, N.Yorkshire)

Are you interested in referring users to care farms or commissioning care farm services? Are you interested in starting to deliver care farming services yourself? If the answer to either of those questions is 'Yes' then this event is for you.

This Care Farming Awareness Day is aimed at both referrers/commissioners of services and also prospective care farmers.

Where: Rural Arts, The Old Courthouse, Westgate, Thirsk, YO7 1QS

When: Wednesday 11th March 2020

  • 09.30am - 1.15pm (Half day including lunch & networking) for commissioners or referrers
  • 09.30am - 4.00pm (Full day including lunch & networking) for prospective care farmers.

What to expect on the day:

The morning will provide an introduction to care farming, why it is a good thing and will showcase three local care farmers who will talk more about their journey, the services they provide and other key considerations.

Following a networking lunch, prospective care farmers are invited to stay on for a number of interactive workshop sessions in the afternoon which will encourage them to think about how they might develop safe and person centred services. Our experienced care farmers from the morning will be on hand to help answer questions alongside the Growing Care Farming team and a representative from McClarrons Insurance.

Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.
