Lorica - East Clayton Farm
East Clayton Farm is owned by the National Trust and in 2005 Lorica Trust obtained a 99 year lease. The farm had not been in productive use for a number of years prior to this, and both the buildings and the land had fallen into disrepair and neglect.
The vision for the project was to restore East Clayton Farm on several fronts:
These restorative initiatives were all aimed at ensuring that the farm became a productive, thriving community.
The Farmhouse is now used by YMCA Downslink who provide homeless or long-term unemployed young adults with the opportunity to live, work and re-train within a supportive community environment.
