Staff and volunteers

Voluntary work and giving back is really important to Flowerdew Farm.

 

Flowerdew Farm provides a safe space for those needing a break from their everyday lives, we also offer training, teaching and guidance.

 

As well as we know the amazing benefits that our farm offers to those with learning  difficulties, social anxieties, ASD, dementia, disabilities and those in care and in recovery. 

We are proud to partner with 

Dorset NHS START Mental Health Team. We are helping provide volunteer opportunities and extended support beyond our animal, nature, creative wellness sessions. We believe in supporting mental health, our local community and providing opportunities to others in our local rural area.

Community

We are proud to support biodiversity and planting projects such as The Big Dorset Hedge Campaign, with the huge support from Bridport Tree Plating Group.

 

Successfully planting a new mini orchard and a hedgerow with 500+ new plants and 500+ new trees from Ashbridge Nurseries, to help support our land, animals and insects. 

Educating and sharing mentorship with the next generation, so that we can build back better and leave no trace.

 

Encouraging development through play, the outdoors and animals is both rewarding and brings some serious vibes to the farm!

We are a proud member of The Jurassic Coast Trust an independent charity responsible for protecting and conserving the UNESCO World Heritage status of the Jurassic Coast, a stretch of coastline that spans the counties of Dorset and Devon on the south coast of England. 

They engage with stakeholders along 95 miles of coastline to preserve the Jurassic Coast's unique geology, palaeontology and geomorphology ensuring its future for generations to come.

Team Leader

START (Support, Transition And Recovery Team)

The Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust’s Support Transition and Recovery Team (START) and Flowerdew Farm are working together to facilitate a group where START patients can have a place to learn and interact with animals (alpacas and goats), where they can feel the benefits of being in the fresh air and countryside, a place where people can volunteer so they can feel part of the community and most importantly a place where they are social included.

 

START and Flowerdew Farm have agreed to run a group throughout the spring/summer and beyond, people who have attended have said the following

  • ‘I feel spiritually topped up’

  • ‘After attending a volunteer day I slept the best I have in years’

  • ‘Wow, the farm is such a great place, I love being so close with the animals, it has really improved my mood’

 

For myself as the team leader of the START team I am incredibly happy to be working alongside Flowerdew Farm, its great to see people look so happy and content when they are working alongside Claire.
