On Friday 4th February we were privileged with a visit from Mark of Trevalon Organic Vegetables in South-East Cornwall. Mark does an amazing job growing organic vegetables and supplying a vegetable-box to over 80 customers, and came here to share his experiences and wisdom with members of Bosavern Community Farm. We spent 5 hours chewing the cud, including a windswept walk around site, and came away with many answers and many more questions. Such as - should we try to grow everything here on the farm, or should we grow as much as we can and buy produce in from other organic producers in the local area? If anybody has a view on this please let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
Many thanks to Mark for taking the time to come and visit us, and to the inspiration he has instilled in us. The Trevalon website can be found at www.trevalon.co.uk.
Also thanks to the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens (www.farmgarden.org.uk) for donating 50 canes of Autumn bliss raspberries! We'll plant them before the end of the month, and if anyone wants to lend a hand please phone Hugh on 01736 788454.
