Growing Lives will give new life experiences and opportunities to help homeless and vulnerable people to break free from old patterns and make positive changes to their lives.

The project will revive an organic farm in Kirk Langley, Derbyshire. People will take part in training and gain practical experience in organic horticulture and farming. Community mentors will offer support to make sure that everyone who takes part gets as much benefit as possible from the experience. This could be anything from gaining a new understanding of the countryside to getting more active and healthy, to getting new qualifications for a better future.

Please help us to realise our vision of transforming Lodge Farm into a thriving, working farm full of opportunities for people who are struggling.
