Volunteer or attend Mindfulness sessions at Horton Community Farm. Covid-safe. Lockdown-exempt.

We are welcoming people to the farm with measures in place to provide an enjoyable and Covid-safe, outdoors experience.

We have a number of volunteer placements available on Wednesdays and Fridays. These replace our original drop-in sessions. Volunteering is specifically exempt from national lockdown measures.

We have started to once again run free Mindfulness Garden sessions for over 50s & carers of over 50s on site. Attending a support group is exempt from government lockdown measures. Email mindfulness@hcf.org.uk to register your interest and be informed when places become available.

We hope you are coping well with all of the changes and uncertainty. Stay connected to nature as best you can and remember you are not alone.

Best wishes from the Horton Community Farm team, Charlie, Jonathan, Maryam and Laura.

Volunteer Placements Open

We are welcoming back a limited number of volunteers in a Covid-safe manner. Please read about how volunteering will operate during the Covid19 pandemic at this link. More info on applying here.

Volunteering at Horton Community Farm (HCF) is an opportunity to gain experience of organic growing and site maintenance as well as sharing your knowledge and experience with us. Enjoy working outdoors, learning new skills, meeting new people, adding to your CV and all while making a real difference to a fantastic urban green space. Tasks include planting, harvesting, watering, digging, weeding, cutting back, mowing and hedge trimming.

We hope to hear from you! Long term, we aim to make our services accessible to as wide a range of people as possible. If we can’t accommodate you at this time we will be in touch in the future when we have more capacity.
