Explore – Create – Learn – Grow

The Build & News at Limemead Farm.

Its been busy at Limemead Farm!  Core Creative Education CIC based at Limemead Farm, was awarded part funding from the LEADER Fund to build an Environmental Education Centre, to develop rural employment for the thriving alternative education provision at the Farm and to develop further courses and activities for the community.

Work began on 15th July 2019.  Updates are added to the website regularly to see the build and works progressing – The Farm is looking very different!

  • The Oak Cabin as a beautiful space for learning and creating
  • The large barn ready for forging, wood working, machinery and play
  • The new and improved car park for staff, drop-off’s and visitors
  • The animals new areas, including the goats, donkeys, rabbits, chickens, ducks, sheep, guinea pigs, hedgehogs………
  • Improved wildflower meadow
  • New nursery for larger tree planting area

The works are ongoing with finishing touches and hopefully the arrival of warmer (and drier) weather will mean the Woodland Camp, River Camp & Tented Camp can continued to be used as wonderful learning, exploring and creating spaces.
