The traditional model of care farming uses the whole or part of a farm to provide health, social or educational care services for one or a range of vulnerable groups of people and provide a supervised, structured programme of farming-related activities, including the provision of social prescription. Increasingly, care farms are being referred to as social farms, to move away from the perceived clinical definition of the former. 

The key focus of UrbSFarm will be the potential for care farms in an urban setting, specifically utilising publicly owned green assets (including existing parks as well as unused green spaces), to impact on mental health in the priority target urban communities; consequently reducing pressures on conventional medical and social public sector services – thus creating a ‘virtuous spiral’ of beneficial outcomes and reduced costs for the public sector in return for an innovative use of assets.
