A community farm in Ilkeston is one of the schemes to have benefitted, the farm has given a home to hundreds of animals and provided more than 100 school pupils with work-experience.
A farm in Derbyshire has given over a hundred children work experience after receiving more than a thousand pounds of government funding.
Quackers community farm houses hundreds of animals and will soon provide care qualifications.
Four and a half million pounds is still available in the Midlands from the Community First fund.
