Farming Workshop Building

Opportunities for training would be greatly enhanced with a purpose built classroom

Temporary facilities have been used for 20 years and require upgrade or replacement due to changing needs, new standards, deteriorating structures. The Farming/gardening team require sheltered work spaces to have suitable work in adverse weather conditions

Opportunities for training would be greatly enhanced with a purpose built classroom

The variety of work practices and experience built up over the past 20 years offers a rich variety of opportunities for meaningful therapeutic work experience

At present we have no cattle due to lack of adequate housing, the new project would aim to develop a farm building for a small herd of short-horn cattle.

Expected cost €40,000

Horse Riding Arena Development

Riding and caring for the horses is an important part of live for some people in Jerpoint, whereby some people enjoy the care and company of the horse  and others the riding. There are many articles and books written about the benefits of interaction with horses for people with disabilities and in particular for people with autism.

Jerpoint has a small sand arena (20 x 20 m) which provides a safe and sheltered space for horse riding. This arena was set up 10 years ago and has served us well. With time the sand in the arena has worn down to a thin layer and needs urgent topping up. There are no funds or grants for this.

Expected cost € 2,000

You can help us in completing this project by making a Donation or please Contact us if you can offer assistance other than financial.
