Evergreen Farm, Chuncheon
Evergreen Farm in Chuncheon, was opened in 2011 as an income generating activity for the St John Welfare Centre.
The St John Welfare Centre is a rehabilitation centre and home for about 100 people, both men and women, who are assisted in finding work and living accomodation as they re-build their lives following episodes of addiction, alcoholism and homelessness.
The Evergreen Farm project offers a training opportunity to the residents who help to raise a herd of deer. The antlers are harvested for the production of Chinese medicines. These can then be sold in the local community.
The BASS donation allowed for the purchase of specialist rendering equipment to extract the potent ingredients from the antlers.
