Aimed at families who have a child with autism or an additional need to join us for a fun day out on our working farm
Tuesday, 31st July 2018
Magdalen is a working organic farm set in the glorious countryside of Dorset & Somerset. At the heart of our farm is an education centre from which we offer activities and delicious meals. Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible from all walks of life to enjoy the great outdoors.
Our short breaks day is aimed at teenagers aged between 13 and over who have an additional need and is a great opportunity for mums, dads, brothers and sisters or indeed any family member to come along together and enjoy a fun time. We will start the day with a tour of the farm, feeding the animals and visiting our kitchen gardens to see where we grow our food. Teenagers will get hands-on, making fire, collecting and preparing vegetables from the garden and cooking a tasty, nutritious treat. After a delicious lunch we will investigate wildlife in river and pond habitats and probably getting a bit of a soaking ourselves!
On-site we have 2 all-terrain wheelchairs to help those less able to get around the farm along with a dedicated "Changing place" (please bring your own hoist if required).
We will tailor the event to suit the needs of the individuals in the group so it is important you let us know in advance of any requirements you and your family may have.
