|U3A members during the talk.|
Sunday, March 27, 2011
On Wednesday 23rd March, Hugh gave a talk about the farm in St. Just Women's Institute Hall to the University of the Third Age (U3A), which went down well, with 14 people in attendance. One thing that came out of this talk was the realisation that very few people in the area know that Bosavern Community Farm, rather than being paid by Cornwall Council to run the farm on their behalf, actually pays a commercial rent to the council, all of which has to be raised through farm sales, fund raising, and external grants.
We are now hoping to organise a farm-tour and picnic for members of St. Just U3A in June. Thanks to U3A for inviting BCF to address them, and thanks to several of the members who sponsored chickens on the farm.
