The Isle of Man's community farm has received a donation of £120,000 to help develop activities for disabled people.
The funds were provided by the Manx branch of Mencap, and will pay for a new recruit to help build closer links with the island's disabled community.
Farm Team Leader Chrissy Cannell said the idea was to make the community farm more accessible to more people.
The aim of the farm is to provide an educational and nurturing environment by reconnecting people to nature.
The community farm, which opened in January 2012, is run by the Isle of Man's Children's Centre.
