Jennie Street & Anita Ollerenshaw
Managing Director & Rhubarb Farm Manager
Rhubarb Farm offers work placements, training and volunteering opportunities to people with long-term issues, or people who want to learn about growing their own fruit and vegetables. We offer support to people who are ex-offenders, have mental ill health, physical ill health, learning disability, physical disability, dementia, are school students struggling with their behaviour at school, are recovering drug or alcohol misusers, or are ex-service personnel with PTSD. Although we are not totally wheelchair-accessible because of rough ground, several wheelchair-users come weekly to site, and are not deterred by this.
We accept people whatever their support needs, and abilities, and provide group or one-to-one support depending on need. Everyone who comes to Rhubarb Farm is a volunteer, no matter what their needs or abilities - everyone can make a contribution.
RHUBARB FARM CLOSED TO ALL VOLUNTEERS
It is with great sadness that from Monday 23rd March, we closed to all volunteers. We have had conversations with all of them prior to this, to explain our decision, ask them to stay at home, and be very careful of their health and others. There have been tears, anxiety and sadness.
Rhubarb Farm staff are continuing to work on horticulture activities at the Farm, and will be phoning every one of our volunteers at least once a week as distance support to make sure they are OK at home.
We face severe financial losses but we will do our best to survive and bounce back for the people who need us when the coronavirus crisis is over.
