LOOK are heading to Jamie’s Farm again for five days from the 22nd to the 26th of July!

Step out of your comfort zone – learn, grow, and make friends for life.

Take an active role in all aspects of running a farm in one to one sessions and small group sessions with highly skilled adults. Experience Cooking and preparing meals, feeding and caring for the animals, planting and harvesting from the garden and much more!

Jamie’s Farm’s unique combination of farmingfamily and therapy offers an environment where young people are respected, and are given opportunities to display their talents and show responsibility.

Throughout the week you will be supported by our team of four LOOK Mentors – visually impaired adult volunteers with a wide range of backgrounds, interests and life experiences.
