Thanks again for building our shelves! Our first few weeks of the 2015 harvest have gone very smoothly because of your work. Cheers
Hooray for our first harvest of the year!!! All the hard work is paying off once again. We couldn't do it without the commitment of our members, our volunteers, students, apprentices and Cat our long term volunteer. Thank you all! There's just 3 places left so email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to sign up.

Today I've been excitedly inspecting our glasshouse crops which are all coming along and almost ready for the first harvest on the 2nd of June for our CSA members. If you want to be eating fresh, local veg then contact email@example.com and check out this tiny Broad Bean from outside!

Xmas isn't far away. 😉 Below isn't a farm wedding veil, it's crop mesh to protect our babies from overzealous munching by pests.
Last week the level 2 & 3 students learned how to use our seed drill and we quickly sowed carrots, beetroot and parsnips before the weekend rains came to water them in. Thanks to our learners!

I've got an amazing tan… and had to work all weekend… but luckily had 4 volunteers that came out and helped the CSA sort out the new field ready for planting up. Thank you to Chris, Mel, Sonia and Monika (with shout outs to Hannah and Lou & Dan for offering). Another job jobbed –… Continue Reading…
Chris' last volunteer day is today. So we sent him off with a bronze fork and lots of appreciation for the time he's spent as our Long Term Volunteer. Thank you Chris!
Always good to have a plan. This way all the lovely people who work on site know what's happening… And we can try and get there together. 🙂 this is our cropping plan
