Thanks to everyone who wants to have a go at volunteering – it’s a great way to try out organic horticultural methods that you can adapt to your own garden. We are starting with two sessions in the week: Sunday mornings 10.30-12.30 and Wednesday afternoons 2.30-4.30. If there are other times that would suit you better, let us know and we can probably sort something out. We will also have volunteering opportunities at the Houghton orchard – a two acre site with over 600 apple, pear, plum and cherry trees. The main focus will be on a new area of vegetables where we are developing a limited-dig system with novel methods of weed control and nutrient management. Let us know (email@example.com) if you are interested in the Houghton project and we can work out session times.
If you volunteer on Wednesday afternoons at Low Luckens you will be able to make use of our farm shop. There are lots of bargains to be had including pick-your-own veg and produce we didn’t put in the boxes that week. Of course you don’t have to be volunteering to enjoy the shop.
A selection of our own salad leaves which could include: miner’s lettuce, corn salad and various Oriental leaves – two bags for £2.
Try a handful for £1.50.
It helps us a lot – and you are more likely to get what you order – if you can place your order or let me know of any changes by Sunday of the previous week.
GENERAL BONUS BAG: Choose any item we supply (fruit or veg) and as long as supplies allow, we’ll bring you a bag of it weighing more than you would normally get for the price. £2 a bag. Here’s a Spring Special Offer: as long as we have the produce, you can have as many General Bonus Bags as you like. Order early to avoid disappointment!
