Situated on the edge of Poundbury, Dorchester, the Community Farm was the first project set up by Transition Town Dorchester. With support from the Duchy of Cornwall and plenty of hard work, we eventually managed to get this project off the ground.
We now have a farm with an enormous polytunnel and outside raised beds, a few fruit trees and a pond, an orchard with a lot more apple and pear trees, several colonies of bees, a wildlife pond and some geese and hens, and a forest garden.

The Community Farm is open to anyone who is interested in joining us. Our main aim is to get together to explore ways of living more sustainably and building a community, through sharing growing space, tools, knowledge, ideas and work, and harvesting produce together.
