GOOD LIFE PROJECT

The Good Life Project was set up in 2013 in the grounds of Oakfield (Easton Maudit), a rural setting of over two acres, and offers a chance to learn about growing food and caring for the animals. The project offers training opportunities and practical placements in horticulture and animal care for anyone who is interested and can be accessed by anyone who has an interest in developing their skills in this direction. Groups are small and person centred and one to one support is available for residents when needed. All participants receive a portfolio with certificates for tasks completed and achievements attained.

Annual horticultural shows and rallies are attended with the residents where produce grown on the project is sold to the public. Residents are encouraged to sell the produce and take the money with support from staff members.
