A New Space for Therapeutic Horticulture at Snakehall Farm this Autumn

We are building something new at Snakehall Farm.

We are creating The Orchard – a new complex needs safe space for therapeutic horticulture for Co-workers with profound or multiple disabilities. Working on a 1:1 or small group provision, The Orchard will nurture in nature while creating small work based activities linked to wider growing plan of Snakehall Farm.

Cabin Viva Danny and Snakehall Farm Co-workers show just how big our new Co-worker Zone in the Orchards will be when built

We are recruiting for a Therapeutic Horticulture Lead to help shape this new provision and we have lots of interest in new placement starters from September 2022. If you are interested in the role to help shape our Complex Needs provision on Snakehall Farm please check out our vacancies page. If you are interested in a supported placement in The Orchards or want to know more about how we grow opportunities for people with additional needs take a look at our Placements Information or call the office on 01638741551 for more details or to arrange a farm tour.

We are fundraising to complete this project over the summer. We have received funding from many donors and are seeking additional capital grants and donations. You can donate online on our Project Page https://localgiving.org/charity/prospectstrust/project/TherapeuticHorticultureOrchard/ If you are interested in supporting the capital development of this and other projects at The Prospects Trust please contact Maz Baker on 01638741551 to discuss in more detail.

Where the Wild Things Can Grow: Re-wilding at Snakehall Farm 2022

Farmer Mark and Trustee Peter meet to discuss the possibilities in our triangle field of dreams

Snakehall Farm has always been a haven for all things green but this year we have a grand plan to go super green. No not just growing more beans, sprouts or salad.

This year we are going to grow wild!

We have secured £10,000 from Together for our Planet (Lottery Funding), we have an active Community Crowdfunder with Aviva and we have plan to transform our 7.5 acre field into a community green space with a difference. We are re-wilding, tree planting, bug spotting and carbon offsetting with our new project.

You can donate to our £3,000 Crowdfunder up until 29th June 2022, this will show you how close we are to reaching our target:

You can easily scan to donate to our Crowdfunder here:

We need lots of help! If you can donate your time, your skills, your tools or even plant hire we want to hear from you. Perhaps you can sponsor some larger trees or just want to offset your own carbon by helping us create a green space for the planet in a corner of Cambridgeshire.

We are going to continue to tend to the saplings in this field, add more hedges and plant bigger trees.

We are going to add wildflower meadows and a community meeting space in the heart of the field of green dreams.

We are going to add accessible pathways and mowed nature trails around the site.

We will dig two scrapes to help promote the biodiversity, with a pond dipping platform and seats to just drink in the fresh air.

Draft Plan of the Field

Please get in touch if you are able to support our field of dreams and help us grow wild.
