Community Fund – Rhubarb Farm – June Update

P6120020_thumbJune was a busy month for activities at Rhubarb Farm.

 

18 DWP staff came from 6 locations across the UK to do a day’s volunteering and built the first stages of 2 new outdoor pizza ovens.  Getting their socks and shoes off to paddle the clay mix was certainly different from their normal work routine!

 

And we ran two 2-day taster courses for people seeking work.  On the first day they did horticultural activities and the 2nd day they picked crops and then cooked a meal.  Everyone loved it.  The best comment was from a long-term alcohol misuser who said the course was infinitely better than a day’s drinking!
