Community Fund – Rhubarb Farm – March Update

ndet rhubarb farm jc 6Rhubarb Farm has been able to employ another young unemployed person through the Big Lottery Talent Match programme. Brendan, aged 22, started his first ever job as Gardener and is proving to be a hard worker and good learner.

We also had fabulous news that we have won a £25,000 award from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust, to enable us to employ a Horticulture Worker to expand our crop production and generate more income for our work.
