New volunteers and a great winter salad harvest20 Mar 2022
Over lockdown we had a lot of people ask to join the farm and we weren’t able to run a proper induction process so we started a waiting list for the first time. When we were able to get people involved again mid 2021 we found this was a slow process so for our workday in March we invited everyone on the waiting list to join us for the day to see if membership is for them.
The workday started as usual with a cuppa and a chat through the jobs list.
After a tour of the farm and a chat about the project the new volunteers joined the rest of the farm team to either clean out the chickens or do a mega weed of the outdoor veg area that had become a little neglected over the winter and cover it with a layer of compost.
After lunch Harry then demo-ed how to clip chickens wings and dust them for mites and we introduced our new chickens to the rest of the flock.
