Wild Wellies Adventure Trails @ Fordhall Organic Farm
Oct 2 @ 9:30 am – 11:45 am
Wild Wellies Adventure Trails @ Fordhall Organic Farm  | Tern Hill | England | United Kingdom
Come and join us for a new look Wild Wellies designed to keep families safe during these uncertain times.
Wild Wellies will now be a short trail available every Friday – perfect for little legs, with three stops along the way. At each stop there will be an activity to do and you will be given a bag of goodies with you to help with each task.
You need to book on a time slot with our office and pay your fees (Tel. 01630 638696) and then collect your bag from outside our tearoom to start your journey. When you have made the most of the activities at the three stops, you will find yourself with Caroline, our forest school leader for a final activity (weather dependent) this will usually be cooking a snack on our open fire.
You need to book one slot per family, and there is a charge of £3 per child, with £1 for additional siblings. Unrelated friends in “family bubbles” will be charged at £3 a child. Please ensure you stick to your allocated start time to ensure we can keep different bubbles distanced.
You can make a day of it when you have finished our session by exploring the farm: why not get a hot drink and food from our grazing cabin, see the animals or go on one of our walks!

Volunteer Weekend @ Fordhall Organic Farm
Oct 10 @ 9:45 am – Oct 11 @ 4:00 pm
Volunteer Weekend @ Fordhall Organic Farm | Tern Hill | England | United Kingdom

Would you like to make a positive difference? Join us for a weekend of volunteering on Fordhall Farm. Surrounded by beautiful Shropshire countryside, you’ll be working to support our community projects or improving the environment. This weekend we plan to focus on environmental work by tree planting and continuing restorative works at the Three Ponds.
You will receive all your food, and will have the opportunity to meet like-minded people, learn new skills and experience life at our welcoming farm. Due to COVID-19 most participants will be for day sessions, but there is very limited accommodation in our lovely eco-friendly Straw Lodge if required on a first come first served basis.
We need people with all different skills – whatever you are skilled in, we need you!
The weekend begins at 9.45am on Saturday until 4pm on Sunday.
Booking is essential and early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. Email mike.grabarz@fordhallfarm.com to secure your place or for more info.
