A small farm delivering big benefits for people; improving health and well-being through food growing and access to green space, sharing skills to encourage more people to take action for nature and to bring people from different backgrounds together.
Our plans for Gosling Sike Farm are firmly focussed on involving young people from all sections of the community and delivering learning andskills programmes aimed at young people, volunteers and the wider community.
Our recent work to support young people with training and finding employment in the conservation sector has been phenomenally successful. It has clearly demonstrated that, with your help, there is an important role for Cumbria Wildlife Trust to play in passing on knowledge and skills to the future guardians of wildlife in Cumbria.
In 2009, Susan Aglionby OBE gifted Gosling Sike Farm to Cumbria Wildlife Trust. This gift safeguards the future of this organic farm as a place people can visit, explore and learn.
Our dream is for this small farm in Carlisle to bring big benefits for people; improving health and well-being through food growing and access to green space, sharing traditional skills to encourage more people to take action for nature and creating a more inclusive society by bringing people from different backgrounds together.
Our biggest and most immediate challenge is securing funding for a building to provide the facilities needed and to be a base for our activities.
Please will you make a donation towards a positive change for the future of wildlife and people and to the building at Gosling Sike Farm? You can do this either on our website or by sending it in to us in the post.
We also have a wish list of equipment, furniture and fittings needed to get the building operational. Can you help by providing any of these items?
If you would like to know more you can email me (Michelle) I'd love to hear from you and will do my utmost to answer your questions.
Thank you for your support.
Your donation of money or items will help to get the building up and running. Please support this project with a donation if you can.
An oasis in the heart of Carlisle inspires generations and changes lives. This is the dream you can make happen.
