Farms for City Children
“Farms for City Children is a wonderful charity helping to educate young people on food and farming while developing their social skills. I think it’s such a worthwhile cause, you can really see the difference they make ” Michael Caines MBE
Children’s author Michael Morpurgo and his wife Clare founded Farms for City Children at Nethercott House in Devon in 1976. The charity offers urban children from all over the country a unique opportunity to live and work together for a week at a time on a real farm in the heart of the countryside. It is an intense, ‘learning through doing’ experience of a different life – for children who may not know where their food comes from and have limited opportunities to explore the outside world.
Farms for City Children will be our chosen charity for the months of September and October. In 2019, we raised £612 for this wonderful charity.
