The Community Farm, Bristol
On Thursday 31st March, 5 of the Bosavern Community Farm team took a "learning journey" to The Community Farm at Chew Magna, near Bristol - see their website www.thecommunityfarm.co.uk for more details. The farm was a private enterprise which has recently been bought by the community through a community share issue, and supplies 350 vegetable boxes a week to local residents. Many thanks to Phil for showing us around, explaining their set up, and being patient with the questions we bombarded him with - it's always fascinating for us to see how other schemes operate, and we never fail to pick up useful tips, making visits like this highly valuable.
