Oak Farm Takes on Computer Upgrades

Days at Oak Farm are always different, from animal husbandry to horticulture, jam making and cooking, workers at the Farm learn all sorts of different skills, all while keeping the Farm running. 

Recently, they have taken on a new challenge, computer maintenance! With support from Tim, our Digital Outreach worker, the workers at Oak Farm were able to upgrade computers donated to us from Birmingham City Council as a part of their Digital Hardware Donation Scheme.

Tim said:

“We held a couple of computer maintenance workshops for the people we support at Oak Farm. The guys were so enthusiastic and eager to learn new skills. Lots of fun was had whilst completing the serious task of upgrading these relatively slow older computers to be fully refurbished machines for a new computer suite at Oak Farm.  

We needed to upgrade the RAM, and install new solid state hard drives. We sourced some second-hand parts including a faster CPU we could use to boost the speed further. Our final task was to install a new operating system and test everything worked. Thanks to Birmingham City Council for donating these computers.”
