Community Fund – Rhubarb Farm – June Update
Lots of good things happened at Rhubarb Farm in June. Our new environmental afterschool club, for 8-12 year olds, The Grub Club, started in June, led by a forest school ranger and assistant youth worker. Twelve excited local children are now keen members. And the Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner allocated us £5,000 for a new polytunnel to help us provide more activities for ex-offenders and increase our crops output.
We also held a pond-planting day when Derbyshire Wildlife Trust provided several hundred pounds worth of pond plants and volunteers had a great day getting wet and muddy. And of course, the weeds at Rhubarb Farm grew in June, along with our crops!
