Rhubarb Farm – February Update

February saw two big steps forward for Rhubarb Farm. Firstly, our two 40′ containers, one for storage and the other an office, arrived on site ready for kitting out. Nottingham University Environmental Technology Centre is funding us to insulate the office container with sheep’s wool to save heating bills. Secondly, we employed 3 long-term unemployed young men as gardeners, under the Future Jobs Fund. They are all local lads. They are now preparing the ground ready for planting and sowing, with our farming neighbour ploughing the entire site.
