The Nurture Farm
Huckleberries Nurture Farm offers emotionally troubled children and those going through tough times, a place to connect with themselves and others, to grow and recover. As the first Nurture Farm in the UK, we’ve taken the nurture group model into the outdoors, combining the principles of green social care and care farming. At Huckleberries we use the magical combination of animals, nature immersion and well-being techniques in our beautiful rural setting to rekindle the capacity that every child is born with – to be themselves and love who they are, be curious about their world, take risks, see failing as learning, and be resilient.
We do this by helping children to develop skills to be more mindful, to adjust how they think about and respond to life’s challenges, and so enhance their emotional well-being and resilience. Most importantly through the curative potential of animal and human interactions, the children realise they are held in the hearts and minds of others, which has a powerful influence on their journey.
