Community Fund – Rhubarb Farm – February Update

Rhubarb Farm apple harvesting 2011In February the weather was so bad at one point that we had to stop volunteers coming to site for 3 days because of the muddy conditions.  Things improved towards the end of the month and we could start to do practical work around site.

 

Our lovely new Foal tractor arrived, thanks to a loan from the Key Fund, which means this year that we will be able to be more on top of ground preparation during the busy growing season.

We are looking forward to our poultry project called Chicken Run starting in March with the arrival of a big coop and 80 hens.  More news next month.
