We hope in 2024 to start a face to face service on our High Wycombe based small holding and or in the community. We are collecting expressions of interest and ideas from you on the services we could offer.
Suggestions based on feedback so far are:
Participants helping us at community events, craft fairs and markets helping manage our stand as we sell participants designs from our virtual work experience in product design.
More participants and organisations print partnering and setting up their own shop selling their designs we continue to print for you.
Those on Supported Internships may like to help us with our Shetland Pony business focused around pony care and equine pony activities and therapy we want to set up. They may like to help us look after the ponies such as field and stable management, learn about the animals, take booking for visits to us or bookings into the community such as us taking the ponies to SEND schools or day centres or old peoples homes. Maybe you would like to help us on these visits? We may offer parties but we need your help to decide what we will offer and then to set up and run the service! We are already RSPCA approved and have a rescue horse as well as another horse and some Shetland ponies. Our farm has 8 acres of land. We plan this year to do care farming training, the CEVAS Therapeutic Course.
Participants may like to work on our wild flowers pond project we hope to run. The area was once a pond and we want to grow marsh flowers in the area.
You/they may like to help us start a horticulture project. We may get some raised beds and a disabled access polytunnel.
