At LOVE learning we seek to improve the education and life chances of vulnerable children, young people and adults, as well as their families. Our educational hub at Gorgie City Farm is an important resource which will support our aims.
The farm will open seven days a week and will be free to enter providing a range of exciting education, environmental and social care programmes supporting vulnerable children and adults.
Lynne Bell, CEO at Love Learning Scotland says:
This will include learning programmes within a newly-established skills academy, social prescribing, animal therapy and employability projects.
In addition, our educational centre will engage with local communities on environmental programmes around farming and food production and our intention is to have a food bank and social enterprise café. It will be a real community hub.
We would like to commend the massive community support and fully recognise the love there clearly is for Gorgie City Farm. We cannot wait to get in and to work with the Council and other key stakeholders to get it up and running.
