Sturts Community Trust is an exciting venture bringing together a range of social initiatives built around a vision of promoting sustainability. We have our base on Sturts Farm, a 90 acre working organic biodynamic farm on the outskirts of West Moors. As a Camphill Community, Sturts Farm has, for well over 30 years, been offering land-based work opportunities, individualised support and supported living for adults who have a learning disability. With the founding of the Sturts Community Trust we are building on this rich history by opening up our resources and expertise in social work and agriculture to benefit a wider range of individuals within our local community in East Dorset.

Our vision is to promote opportunities in land-based activities, including on our farm, in our garden and by providing allotment spaces; opportunities for lifelong learning based around the themes of sustainability, food and the arts; to offer opportunities to benefit from accommodation within our co-housing project; and to offer individuals the level of individualised support they need.

Sturts Community Trust aims to be a vibrant and valued resource within our local community by offering access to a local farm and to local food and through this to build relationships through working and learning together. We hope you enjoy finding out more about us.
