Want to attend a course at Orchard Barn or
get involved as a volunteer? Got access needs?
Orchard Barn we've constructed facilities that are accessible to all.
the paved parking bay you'll find an individually crafted boardwalk
that provides wheelchair access to the toilets.
boardwalk also joins up with a brick path into the main workshop and
true Orchard Barn style it is volunteers and trainees who
undertake these building projects (usually under the professional eye
of a local craftsperson). There is an abundance of practical and
communication skills development when construction is undertaken this
way. Yes, it's slower but the benefits are so much broader.
We've designed our environmental education centre using easily
accessible natural materials from the local landscape - so our carbon
footprint is very small.
are currently working on making the raised beds in the vegetable garden
accessible by making the paths wider, and the beds narrower.
