“Farmeco seeks to reconnect people with the land, the food that land produces and the environment.”
Farmeco established an edible woodland of 4500 fruit and nut trees in 2017. This natural, outdoor environment enables the deliveryof practical land based activities that aim to significantly improve the lives of individuals and local communities. Engagement includes the development of skills in growing, processing and selling farm produce, and monitoring biodiversity.
Farmeco will enable people of all ages from local rural and inner city communities, from all sectors of society and with differing needs and abilities, to benefit from improvements in their physical health and mental wellbeing. It will also seek to influence behavioural change as people develop a greater understanding and appreciation of rural life, the environment and agro-forestry.
