Rhubarb Farm not only now has two pizza ovens but a smokery too! All built by volunteers treading the clay, straw and sand mix with their bare feet, despite the November cold – and enjoying it! The second, deluxe pizza oven was built as a two day course.
In addition, two cookery courses ran in our café in November – a six week Cooking for Young Parents and a 2 session Cookery for people with Mental Ill Health. Both were very successful with students wanting to do more. They were funded by the British Heart Foundation, and extended by South Normanton WI who provided the tutor for the Cookery for Young Parents, and so enabled us to make it a longer course.
Our volunteer numbers are increasing and the site is busy despite the cold and the rain – working outside in groups helps people forget the weather, and just have fun.
