The Houghton Project is a not-for-profit organization set on a farm between Hereford and Leominster. We provide opportunities for anyone who wants to learn a variety of rural skills, but who may like some support and guidance to get fully involved.
About the Project
We are a farm project that provides opportunities for ANYONE who wants to take part in a variety of rural activities but who would like some support to get fully involved.
People who come to the Project have told us that as well as learning new skills they have made friends and gained confidence that has enhanced and helped them in other areas of their lives.
We also offer six week courses and short interactive talks in a range of subjects that build self reliance
At the heart of our provision is a focus on the individual and their specific strengths. We provide a relaxed and supportive environment that encourages people to build on their strengths, develop resilience and confidence to deal with any difficulties that they face.
