Cycling 4 SEED.

On Monday 12th March, Bosavern Community Farm was visited by Martin and Marika, who are cycling from Land's End to John O'Groats to raise money for Sustainability and Environmental EDucation (SEED), and visiting sustainability projects en-route. Being only 5 miles from Land's End we were their first point of call! They cycled to the farm, and were joined by a group of students from St. Just Primary School to look around the farm and film each other talking about the project and what they were learning during Climate Change Week.
Martin and Marika meet St. Just primary school students in the farmyard.

Discussing the chickens.

Filming interviews with Natalie and Thomas (WWOOFers) on the vegetable field.

Meeting one of the tamer chickens.

Meeting the kune kune pigs, who never tire of having their tummies tickled.
We wish Martin and Marika all the best on their epic cycle journey.

After their visit, the students returned to school, and the farm ran a stall selling fresh organic produce at the school gates as part of Climate Change Week. The schoolchildren had been learning about food miles, and the food from this farm traveled less than one mile to their school gate, underlining our commitment to fresh local organic affordable produce accessible to all.
