We held our summer open day (in cooperation with Open Farm Sunday) on July 10th, in a heatwave, having postponed the event from June 19th because of bad weather! So we had to shelter from the sun instead of from the rain, but still, a lot of people came along and helped us to celebrate the farm and our local community.

Plus we had refreshments from the Community Cabin, a farm tour with our Head Grower, Lawrence the Potter demonstrating and selling pots in the yard, our farmshop, a book stall by donation, Warren's Welly Wanging in Four Acre Field, meet the chickens with one of our WWOOFers, and an open farm for the day.
Many thanks to everybody who attended, for helping to put the community into the farm, and for all our volunteers who helped us set up and take down, organise and plan, and help on the day. And many thanks to all the musicians who performed!
