Protecting community farms and gardens

News item first posted on: 12/03/20

As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations we’ve partnered with experienced and specialist insurance broker, McClarrons to deliver a special event to help these essential community spaces to secure the right insurance. The event has been postponed but we hope to reschedule for a date in the Autumn.

Having adequate insurance cover is vital for all farmers, gardeners and growers, whether they are providing care services, inviting visitors onto their site or organising volunteer work days and other events. Suitable cover protects both the organisation and individuals from potentially very expensive liability claims if something goes wrong.

McClarrons independent insurance brokers operate nationwide, specialising in the farming, not-for-profit and care sectors. McClarrons’ Care & Charity Team offer specialist insurance advice and rates for Social Farms & Gardens members.

They also have an in-house claims team to support policy holders through the claims process, should the worst happen. Their decades of experience mean they are well placed to guide groups to the right insurance, leaving them free to focus on improving the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and the environment through nature-based activities.
