What we're about
We are an informal community group who maintain a smallholding at The Island Project, Draycott in Derby. Every second Saturday of each month we meet up, have a chin wag and a cup of tea before breaking out into groups to complete the tasks for the day. If you like caring for animals, like being outdoors and want to learn life skills and maybe some gardening skills then come and visit us!
We welcome all ages and no previous experience is necessary. Any children under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.
By trade this farm space is an alternative provision for those who struggle with mainstream schooling (For more information see www.islandproject.co.uk). This community group is independent of The Island Project as an alternative provision.
Due to the legalities and conflict of interest of alternative provision current students and their families / carers are unfortunately unable to attend these community events.
