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.
