High Wycombe Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Wycombe Community Farm want to teach self-sufficiency in growing your own food and learning life skills through workshops and training. We will teach sustainable development, conservation of the environment and about renewable energy sources. We will create and maintain wildlife habitats . We will endeavour to bring over 200 allotments to High Wycombe, offer workshops, facilitate recycling centres where points are earned for recycling and the points redeemable on our products and services; open a farm shop & cafe and a garden centre and nursery.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will lease or purchase land to start Wycombe Community Farm.
  • We will create over 200 allotments when we open along with a recycling centre.

Why it's a great idea:

High Wycombe has a diverse population.
There is the need to teach people how to grow their own food as more and more people are using food banks and food prices continue to rise.
We need to stop using landfill and find ways to up-cycle our waste where possible.
It teaches self-sufficiency and sustainable living.

Steps to get it done:

  • We have a team of trustee's and volunteers who will start building the farm ready for planting crops.
  • Will divide one acre into allotments.
  • We will build an educatianal centre where members of the public can visit, schools & groups can organise trips..
  • We will strive to find use of abandoned/derelict land in High Wycombe for allotments & recycling centres
  • We will create jobs and training by providing work opportunities.
