|Rex and Ilaria with the first beetroot harvest of 2020.|
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
Rex, our lovely long-term wwoof volunteer, finally left us on Sunday morning, having been here since last September. We miss him already! He has eventually managed to reunite with his family in France, having formed a vital part of our "lock-down crew". The farm and our community owe Rex huge gratitude for his help during the past ten months, for his role as a key-worker keeping West Penwith supplied with fresh veg and eggs, and for keeping us sane during stressful times.
We have decided not to host camping on the community farm this year, but we hope to be able to do so again next year with improved facilities. At present, our veg box scheme and farm shop are supplying upwards of 200 local people and families with their fresh veg (and other wholesome food) needs, and it is this essential service during troubled times that we have to focus our energies on. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, but there are plenty of other campsites in the local area. Visitors are of course welcome to visit our farm shop for their food supplies, where we have Covid-19 precautions in place.
