The Vision

Project Manna is a place to find peace, encouragement, and a sense of purpose and self worth. We offer our smallholding to those who need support to help to change or rebuild their lives for a variety of reasons. We are tucked away in the beautiful New Forest, yet accessible to local villages and towns in Hampshire and Dorset. The team at Manna have a heart for reaching out into the community to those who are often marginalised or isolated by society. Our aim is to help people grow and thrive in an environment that is safe, natural and offers all sorts of creative opportunities.

Manna is based on a 5 acre smallholding. The Avon river runs through it and the banks are bordered by peaceful wooded areas. The land is not like a working farm, inasmuch as, though we have a mix of both productive organic growing areas and animals, there are also places where people can find peace and rest. We recognise the benefits that both horticulture and animal care can bring to us all, particularly during times of stress, when life can feel too much. We also feel that the natural beauty of the countryside can bring restoration and pleasure. Manna is a Christian run project, led by people who have a heart for justice and a deep desire to help create lasting change and transformation in peoples lives.
