Social Farming

Over the years we have had many different clients with extra needs coming to the Stables. To take part in our sessions and also to help out. We have found that animals are a great resource to use in socialising with these clients. This has created an interest for us to get involved in Social Farming.

Patricia has completed the following relevant training:

  • Keeping Adults Safe, March 2016
  • Countryside Educational Visits Accreditation Scheme (CEVAS), March 2017
