The Young Farmers Project is an opportunity for young people ages 11-14 from the local area to explore farming and wellbeing. Sessions will include farming jobs, cooking and self-reflection and are about giving children the time and space to reflect, renew and determine a new path for themselves. We do this by creating an environment where they feel respected, and are given opportunities to display their talents and show responsibility.Building confidence and self-esteem for children 11-14 year old.
Oasis Farm Waterloo works in partnership with Jamie’s Farm. Jamie’s Farm exists to transform the lives of vulnerable children in challenging urban schools by providing a unique combination of ‘farming, family and therapy’ through a short-stay residential and follow-up programmes. The charity aims to re-engage children with educational life, enabling them to fulfil their potential both in their school and community, and has worked with over 2,000 vulnerable young people primarily from disadvantaged communities of London.
The club will run for 12 sessions starting June 20th 2018. We’ll be planting, cooking, mucking-out, making and more.
