Kehelland Horticultural Centre was established by Social Services in 1982. Kehelland Trust became an Independent Service Provider in April 2011. We are a registered charity governed by a board of Trustees.
Our mission is:
To provide a rural, horticultural setting for the support of young people and adults with learning and, or physical disabilities, developing personal and social skills, individual opportunities and active participation in the local community.
We occupy a sixteen-acre site situated in the village of Kehelland, on the outskirts of Camborne. We keep chickens and grow all kinds of vegetable crops, soft fruits, Christmas trees, trees, shrubs, herbaceous perennials and seasonal bedding plants.
We are very proud to say that our orchards boast one of the biggest collections of Cornish apple trees. Our wildlife area has a vibrant habitat pond and hide for bird watching. An abundance of creatures can be found here and nature lovers are welcome if not actively encouraged to come and have a look!
We have an Education Centre, where we delivery accredited and non-accredited training for learners 16-24 with an EHCP through main stream funding. Our learners develop skills in independent living, maths and English, confidence building, team work and choose a specialist area to focus on which can be either horticulture, catering or customer service.
