Is fundamentally what Rock Farm does. It’s the entire reason the farm exists, and our whole model is set up to include and engage marginalised vulnerable people.
They are the community, they’re not tokenistic or exceptions. That doesn’t mean we don’t have more work to do, of course, we can always be more inclusive. But our position on a day-to-day level is basically, “How can we make this site accessible to you?”
