Plot to shop is a developmental project for adults with learning disabilities.
Development through horticulture and retail skills.
The Plot to Shop project aims to provide adults with learning disabilities the opportunities to gain confidence and independence through the development of horticulture and retail skills. The project aims to enable individuals to take on active roles as volunteers, trainers and earners within the farm and wider community.
Project participants will be part of the continued development of our farm shop. This will include learning new skills in dealing with the public, packaging, pricing, displaying and retailing products developed within the project and the farm.
All Surrey Docks Farm projects now run alongside our Skills and Progression workshops. This is a voluntry workshop that helps establish a roadmap for students who want to progress to volunteered to paid positions in the wider community.
If you are interested in our Plot to Shop project or know somebody who would like to participate please fill out the form below. We are actively looking for adults with learning disabilities to join our exciting new project on Fridays and Saturdays. Rachel, our project coordinator will get back to you as soon as possible.
