The care farming knowledge base is a library of information developed by the care farming sector. It includes getting started as a care farmer, developing care farming services and related research. 


The knowledge base is a tool for learning, a first step for those wanting to enter care farming and a guide for developing care farming services.

You may find the knowledge base useful if: 

  • You would like to learn more about becoming a care farmer or green care provider
  • You're already a care farmer and want to develop your services
  • You commission or want to commission care farming services, e.g. in health, social care or education
  • You are a researcher, journalist or are interested in finding out more about care farming

The care farming knowledge base was developed by the Growing Care Farming Project (2019-2022).
