Able Hands Together (CIC) is a community interest company, which provides an extraordinay life-changing experience for adults who have learning disabilities. We like to refer to those who use our service as Co-Farmers. We will teach transferable skills to aid development and independence whilst stimulating their minds and aiding emotional and social skills.
We run from a small holding at River Bourne Community Farm, just outside of Salisbury. We first opened in spring of 2016 with a variety of animals on our small holding, including pigs, cows, goats, sheep and rabbits
Our mission is to teach our Co-Farmers how to nurture livestock and to grow their own produce so that they can cook from their success.
