Sensory Garden

Thanks to everyone's very hard work restoration of Sensory Garden has finally been completed. People we support, volunteers and our staff team have done amazing work and the area looks magnificent. We have already had so many compliments from people regarding this wonderful achievement. To celebrate this, Dale Farm Trust has organised a official opening of Sensory Garden which will take place on Saturday 19th August in the presence of the Wirral mayor, and representatives from Wirral Council Adult Social Care. 

Plant Sale

On the 20th of May we hosted a plant sale which was great success. We welcomed a large number of people that never new that the farm existed, and we do in here. Plants are still available for sale from Dale Farm as well as Royden Park Cafe. 

Improvements at the Farm

During last month we managed to improve accessibility to different parts of Dale Farm for people with mobility issues. The North field has been redesigned to create access to all and a number of pathways have been improved.

Now work is concentrating on erection of new Cabin that will enable volunteers and staff to have greater changing facilities and create storage for PPE.

We would like to say a big Thank You to all of our volunteers for their efforts in helping improve the farm for people we support. 

Horticulture Qualification

From this month we will be able to offer a qualification in horticulture through the Open Awards scheme to all people we support at Dale Farm. We have been running pilot scheme with two people to test out the course. We wish all those taking part the best of luck. 

Upcoming Activities/Events

  • From July the farm shop will be open and selling all organic produce.
  • Land Rover have chosen Dale Farm as their chosen community project this year. Staff from their factory will give volunteer hours at the farm to help with maintanence jobs.
