BLISSBERRY FARM MOUNTCHARLES – Pathway towards recovery, progression and social inclusion

Blissberry Farm Mountcharles is a working farm first with Blissberry Social Farm a SOCIAL FARM in progress and a pilot farm with Social Farming Across Borders Programme (SoFab)  please revert to www.socialfarmingacrossborders.org for Blissberry Farm Profile & Activity 2013.
Social Farming I believe is a form of diversification for farmers and their families. These farms help promote mental as well as physical health and wellbeing. As Social Farmers we work with a wide variety of participants, by performing tasks such as looking after animals or tending vegetables, social farms like Blissberry helps people to reconnect with nature and their communities which in turn offers them a pathway towards recovery, progression and social inclusion. They also offer the opportunity to develop a wide range of ‘green’ technical and life skills which can improve life and possible positive pathways to a better quality of life.
