The Paddington Farm Trust.
We have recently established links with another charity local to us. The Paddington Farm Trust is a 43 acre organic farm located at the foot of the famous Glastonbury Tor in the beautiful Somerset levels. The farm is managed by the Trust, a charity whose ethos is to provide educational and recreational events, holidays and training to children and adults from urban centres and local towns and villages. Groups, families and individuals can spend time in nature, learn about quality food production, rural crafts, conservation and organic agriculture.
