Rhubarb Farm June Update

Rhubarb Farm has now been able to lease another 6 acres adjacent to the 2.5acres we already have.  This will enable us to generate a much better income growing fruit and vegetables, enable us to be more sustainable and to promote all our environmental activities – compost toilets, windpower, photovoltaics and water harvesting.  We have also been awarded a short-term graduate intern from Nottingham University, and our Local Strategic Partnership has offered us £50K so we can get our first staff employed.   We have had a wonderful response from local people to the idea of RHUBARB FARM and a lot of support from the local authorities we will serve.  We are now spending a lot of time applying for funds and getting quotes to fence our site, get safe storage and the equipment needed to start growing.  All very exciting!
