Saturday 28th April: Grow Your Own Session in Trumpington

Sowing beetroot at the last session

Join Dave Fox again at Trumpington allotments. Novices and experienced growers all welcome - this is a mutual sharing, not a lesson. This week we will prepare yet more seed beds, and sow seeds in those prepared last time (some of potatoes, onions, beetroot, carrots, spring onions, Swiss chard, salads etc). After some weeding we will look round the forest garden and/or the Polytunnel and/or another plot. Take produce home with you (please bring bags). Expect rhubarb, greens, and spinach, and more. Join in here. More...

Saturday 28th April: CropShare - Be an organic farmer for a day

Willow Farm, Lode, Cambridge, CB25 9HF 10:00-16:00 add to google calendar
Join Transition's community farming project, CropShare, to experience life as a real organic farmer for a day...

This week we will be having fun helping out on the farm from 10:00am to 12.30pm, and 2pm to 4.00, sharing a lunch and a chat in between. You can join us for the morning or afternoon session, or both.

Family friendly, everyone is very welcome! See our website to get a flavour of what workdays are like. It will be good healthy fun, a great chance to see our local countryside, and how food is grown on a large scale.

Please fill in this form if you would like to take part, and we'll also help you arrange travel to the farm.

Hope to see you soon!
