Community Fund – Rhubarb farm – October Update
The big event at Rhubarb Farm in October was a Corporate Challenge Day for 26 Sainsbury’s store managers and HR officers. They lined the pond in the wildlife area, first with sand, then with fleece and then with a butyl pond liner. We were delighted with the support from Sainsbury’s and our pond is looking wonderful now. By next summer it should be a thriving haven for wildlife.
We have continued to produce veg bags every week for our customers, and sowing and planting of garlic, onions, cabbage, herbs and salad crops continues apace for next year’s crops.
We were also delighted to have a new team member – Lesley Asher joined us as Drug and Alcohol worker to support volunteers who are substance and alcohol misusers.
