We would like to thank Suffolk Coastal District Councillor Stuart Lawson for providing funding from his Community Enabling Budget towards a Spring 2018 project at the farm. We used this much-needed and generous funding to buy in several tonnes of ready-made organic compost for the farm. This will help improve the health of our soil and support the healthy growth of our food crops this year.
Stuart has also generously supported some projects which we will be working on later in 2018. These include: – a project to improve irrigation; the development of a herb garden at the farm, the expansion of our cut flower growing area and some funding to further improve the health of the soil at the farm. The funding will enable us to grow more produce and healthier produce. The projects will also have an educational role to play. When people visit the farm they will be able to learn about our sustainable growing techniques and to see them in action.
