The Down to Earth Farm is part of Oasis Academy Lord's Hill Community Hub: Green Lane. At the Down to Earth Farm we are striving to support social enterprise where people from a wide range of backgrounds can undertake meaningful work in a safe environment, which nurtures a sense of self esteem. We provide voluntary opportunities for children and adults on our community farm in animal care, maintenance, horticultural and conservation work.
We also offer education for schools in animal care and gardening, and host children's activities during most school holidays. Our aim is to give anyone who wishes to be involved in these types of activities the chance to do so, developing self confidence and self esteem through achievement.
We have a wide and varied group of people who come to Down to Earth, including those with learning disabilities, autism, mental health issues and young people in and outside of mainstream education etc. Our service is open to people of all ages and all abilities in Southampton and beyond. We have disabled access to most areas and a disabled toilet. Local special schools with wheelchair bound children regularly use our centre.
The Oasis Down to Earth Farm is just off Green Lane and is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday, offering a wide range of activities and animal handling experiences. If you or your family fancy trying something new, pop down and speak to us about the fantastic opportunities we can offer. Admission £2 for Adults and £1 for Children (under 2's free).
