There is always lots to do in the field and with polytunnels it doesn’t matter about the weather. We grow fruit to sell and to make into jam, and vegetables which we learn how to cook and take some to market. We also make chutney with some of our produce.
We have a rotorvator to help with the digging but for the weeding we use our hands!! Some of the vegetables we grow are in the photos below. These include tomatoes, runner beans, peppers, courgettes, butternut squash, pumpkins, marrows and chillies.
Another part of our field is used to graze donkeys and is home to lots of voles, field mice, rabbits, frogs and moles.
The Boaz Project exists to provide an excellent horticultural facility with related work opportunities at which adults with learning disabilities may come together to be valued and productive. Its purpose is to give dignity and confidence in a happy, safe and supportive environment enabling greater independence, social inclusion and employability.
The Project’s Christian ethos seeks to address the whole person, body, mind and spirit, aiming to release and realise each persons full human potential to the glory of God.
