This is a place for growing. Plants, fruit and veg, animals, but most of all, people. We cultivate joy here. And learning. We nurture self-confidence and a sense of belonging. You'll feel it as soon as you walk through our door. Lives
We can't wait to welcome you to this special place of ours, a not-for-profit charity based right in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. Come visit our award-winning, environmentally friendly building, and spend time with our pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, guinea pigs, lizards, tortoises, meadows, ponds and woodlands.
As well as being a visitor attraction, we also offer training for vulnerable adults, volunteering opportunities for local people and a range of activities for families and schoolchildren. Our nearby workshop provides some of these training opportunities and our pre-loved warehouse diverts unwanted furniture from landfill, in keeping with our sustainable ethos.
