Fairtrade Teas 2017

 

Once again the farm hosted a celebration of World Fair Trade Day with visitors enjoying a selection of Fairtrade Teas, Coffee and Homemade cakes.

SCAU camping visits 2017

 

April saw two visits from Sutton Coldfield Adventure Unit, the first being for the youger group with alot of them not having camped before. I met them when doing the rounds of feeding Saturday morning and let them give me a hand to feed the cows.

Apple Pressing Day

 

Saturday 8th October saw visitors and volunteers a like pitching in to pick the cider apples, crushing, pressing and then tasting the juice. Fun afternoon which produced our largest yield of juice yet.

Heritage Open Days

 

Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery, the Landscape Institute was able to organise Heritage Open Days around the country. Woodhouse opened it's doors and took visitors on a walk around the old Capability Brown Features including bridges and a Ha Ha that was part of the remodeled Fisherwick Estate.

Summer BBQ and Open Day

 

Woodhouse welcomed visitors from the community and CSA members to join them for a BBQ and afternoon of games and treasure hunts around the walled garden. A relaxed event which saw pizza's being made in the outdoor oven and Woodhouse sausages and burgers on the BBQ.

Sutton Coldfield Adventure Unit

 

Another big supporter of our project, working with SCAU has been very rewarding for us seeing children from all three of the age groups they work with enjoying camping at the farm.  This year saw a very special Harry Potter Themed Camp to introduce new 7-9 years old to the joy of camping with a special visit from Hedwig arranged by the group.

Wellies Project

We have worked with Nick and Julie from Staffordshire Care Farming Development CIC since 2010 providing a base to host Care Farming projects supporting people from Lichfield and Tamworth.  Care Farming is the use of therapeutic activities involving animals, plants, and the conutryside for people recovering from mental ill health.

Guide Evening Volunteering

 

This year will see both local guide packs help improve the community area, firstly by creating low maintenance fairy gardens and then building outdoor games for themselves and other visitors to enjoy.

Cubs Evening Volunteering

 

For the last five years our local cub group (1st Whittington) have come to the farm over three consecutive weeks to help with activities that help the growers or add to the outdoor community area. This year we had a walk around the farm looking at how we might create a walk way and at the end of the evening the boys fed the chickens.

Brownie Evening

 

The picture shown was taken after a fun activity evening the Brownies had at Woodhouse it was taken at the end of the evening as new Brownies made their promise and those leaving to go to Guides were wished well as parent looked on.
