Despite the name, Six Acres is actually a nine acre site, facilities include 9 polytunnels, 5 greenhouses, extensive growing areas, retail nursery, woodland, playarea and large paddock. A newly installed cabin includes two large classrooms, office and toilet/ canteen facilities.

The site will continue to grow and develop, and has already provided a fantastic space for Countryside Enterprises CIC to run a Farm Shop and takeaway Café Service.

Working in partnership with Six Acre Nurseries, WHM Work Connections is able to run a third Skills Centre from the Six Acre site focusing on skill development, qualifications and moving people into employment.
