Holifield Farm is a community project based in Gweek, South West Cornwall. Our main focus is our Day Opportunities for adults with additional needs.
We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint by using & encouraging renewable energy, sustainable development, recycling, car sharing, energy efficiency, eating wisely and upcycling. Our onsite community lives a low-impact lifestyle & works on the project in exchange for living here.
We also process salvaged wood, hire out marquees and run a range of events and non-profit associations onsite. We have the necessary skills to implement fully engineered, safe and environmentally friendly work-site solutions.
We are committed to low impact, ethical living and aim to be as self sustainable as possible. Our water comes from a borehole and our power comes from Solar Panels. We believe in being inclusive, rather than exclusive.
We have 5 units of accommodation for the supporting staff of the Holifield Farm Project. These are people who are qualified and skilled in their area, choosing to live in a more ethical, sustainable and low impact lifestyles. We are a committed group of people, who enjoy working together and living this sustainable lifestyle.
We are soon to start building a new classroom and office, which will be as sustainable as possible and will be using reclaimed and recycled materials where available.
Zelda School is a registered Charity, also based on Holifield Farm Project. Zelda School is run out of two yurts and it’s philosophy is unique and aims to develop happy, self-disciplined and motivated children. Children learn through play and projects, either individually or collaboratively and spend most of the day outside whatever the weather. This is a place where parents and members of the wider community can take an active role in school life, and where people are not measured against each other, but against their own potential. It is for children aged 2 to 8 years.
