“We began with two things; a 15-acre plot, and a belief. A belief that we could create an organic farm in the heart of the community - open to all - that would re-connect people with the land, their food, and the seasons. We began with bare fields, and built a community. The Community Farm.” . I am delighted to be a part of the Growing Together fundraiser for the @communityfarm - my book ‘Swimming Underwater’ and a selection of @tatterhood_ poem postcards are a part of the rewards. I am just deciding which one I am going for with my donation, likely the amazing discounted veg boxes. Please do pay a visit to their feed to find out more. A truly inspirational community owned social enterprise, growing and selling organic food through a box delivery service, helping others reconnect with the land on which their food is grown and learn more about sustainable farming 💜 Repost: “A quick look at The Farm... 96,000 veg boxes have been delivered 3,000 school children have paid us a visit More than 1,000 people spent at least a day at The Farm last year And 62 people volunteered, giving 646 days of work. That's 3,876 hours! We’ve encouraged 10 people in addiction recovery back into work and helped young people into employment We've work with learning disability organisations, including the Horizon project PLEASE help us continue this work - DONATE what you can to our £20,000 #tcfgrowtogether appeal and SHARE .
