Medicine comes in many different forms
Paula with Will Payne and volunteers and participants at High Mead Farm
Medicine comes in many different forms. Whittling wood, tending the land, caring for animals and feeling the sun on your skin can do wonders for physical and mental wellbeing.
Providing that therapy for many members of the community is High Mead Farm near Longham.
Since last autumn the four-acre plot has offered a supported work environment for people with learning and physical difficulties as well as youngsters who are out of work or who have been excluded from school.
Will Payne and Mark Gregory took over the land, which was in a run-down state, but with the help of local people it’s back on track to becoming a sustainable farm.
“We wanted to make it accessible to the whole community,” explained Will.
