The Green Care Quality Mark (previously called the Care Farming Code of Practice) is essentially a minimum standard - a clear set of guidelines, intended to meet the requirements of commissioners, other referral agencies and service users.
It was developed by a team of care farmers and other specialists and we encourage all those providing care farming services to adopt the Code. This includes farm and garden sites delivering other green care services such as Social &Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) and Animal Assisted Therapies (AAT). The Code is a quality assurance scheme that addresses the most important aspects of care farming.
