Last Sunday we took part in the national Open Farm Sunday event where we opened our gates at Woodbank Community Food Hub to show the work that we do in trying to transform the local food system - it was an absolutely fantastic day, and we are so grateful to everyone for coming down and taking part in our activities.
It’s been just over a month since our community shares campaign to help buy Kindling Farm finished - and we’ve been busy ever since! Here’s a quick update to keep you all in the loop about the next steps for the Farm, and how you can get involved.
It’s been a busy few weeks at Woodbank Community Food Hub, with activity increasing as the season continues to roll on. There are still plenty of opportunities to get involved in too.
We are looking for three people to join us as we embark on our most ambitious project yet. Over the next 15 months we will be establishing a pioneering heritage fruit tree nursery - the start of Kindling’s 100 acre+ agroforestry system - and much more! To do this we will be engaging and skilling up 3,000 people to graft, bud and plant 12,000 heritage fruit trees for the region.
We are very proud of our new website, it has been a real labour of love over the last twelve months. We started with a blank piece of paper and began by asking how our very practical work could be enhanced and supported by a new website.
The result is a gorgeous looking website, with some very useful functions.
