Bentley Urban Farm uses reclaimed materials to repair and maintain a former horticultural training centre in the former mining community of Bentley, just north of Doncaster. The use of reclaimed materials cuts down overheads and shows that there is no such thing as ‘waste’, just wasted opportunities. The farm teaches people how to grow food using ecologically positive techniques such as permaculture and supplies fresh healthy food & meals to vulnerable people. “We run an open door and ‘yes’ policy whereby we allow people to develop any ideas which fit in with our food and ecology objectives. This has led to deeper community connections and a wider, more creative vision than ever we had hoped for. The site has become something of a natural wellbeing centre”.
