About the Farm
Plymouth City Council are working with partners to create the city’s newest park, Derriford Community Park. This site, rich in wildlife will have Poole Farm at its heart, alongside a new visitor and education centre.
Since 2015 volunteers have contributed over 8000 hours working from Poole Farm, planting over 1600 meters of hedgerow, the city’s largest orchard and wild flower meadow, as well as establishing an apprenticeship scheme and habitat surveying. In 2018 part of the site was designated as a Local Nature Reserve - Seaton & Lower Bircham Local Nature Reserve. There are also exciting proposals to release a pair of beavers.
The farm will be a major part of the Community Park, scheduled for completion in 2021, which will provide a foot and cycle path network and new access points for local communities.
Poole Farm is a local nature partnership site that involves people in volunteering, learning and enterprise as part of the Derriford Community Park project. The farm, close to Estover and Crownhill, offers a welcoming countryside feel for all ages and experiences.
