A Taste of Paradise Farm Cover Photo
The Farm takes disabled, disadvantaged and at risk children who are referred by specialist agencies and gives them the opportunity to participate in farming activities. This normally achieved on a 1:1 basis with a trained Mentor who tailors the activities according to the child's physical and intellectual abilities. Most children are excluded from mainstream education due to their behavioural issues or have PTSD from excessive and continual bullying. Most live in group homes or have experienced many foster care situations. A significant number have been victims of parental neglect, sexual or physical abuse and have lost trust in relationships or adults. Many are from indigenous backgrounds. At the farm they find relationships with gentle animals very cathartic and can gradually renew trust over time. Children can participate in all aspects of farm life from animal welfare to growing seedlings, transplanting them and preparing plants for sale at the local farmers market. The more able can be taught to drive an RTV,taking feed out to the paddocks for horses goats and cattle. For others just handling a day old chick or baby goat calms them and gives them inner peace.
