Volunteer days.


We welcome everybody to come along to the farm to help and to learn. Volunteer days are Thursdays 10am till 3pm, and Saturdays 1 till 5pm. Just turn up! Please make sure you have sturdy footwear, clothes you don't mind getting dirty, and a packed lunch (Thursdays). Never mind if it's raining, because there are indoor tasks like planting in the polytunnel or painting the volunteer space to be done. We provide tools, gloves, training, tea and biscuits. So come along and get stuck in! For further details phone the farmhouse on 01736 788454. Last Thursday we got 12 beds in the polytunnel ready for planting, by edging them with old tiles and beams taken from the roof of our pig-shed (unfortunately it was unsafe and had to come off, but we found a use for the materials), and placing stepping stones to provide access. Some of these beds have already been sown with winter greens. These photos are of the polytunnel before and after our volunteers got to work - quite an improvement! Many thanks to all.
