The Shallowford Trust

Type: Agency
A farm based on Dartmoor that works with disadvantaged youth and young adults.

Our Vision is that young people from all walks of life, religious, ethnic or social background, who have a poverty of experience in rural affairs and environmental learning opportunities, engage positive change through courses that challenge their assumptions and norms of behaviour, to catalyse a more responsible and productive future for themselves, their community and our environment.

To achieve this we work with groups of disadvantaged young people (mainly) on a working Dartmoor farm, doing everything from mucking out pigs, collecting eggs, walking in the rain, in the dark of the night, moving cows & sheep, lambing, weighing piglets, sharing meals, stories, debating & challenging norms.
