We are delighted to announce we have received £2,000 from the Postcode Local Trust towards a pump and irrigation system to water our crops at West Farm. We have lots of work ahead of us to install the system and once it's in place we will have an efficient, effective method in place to give all our crops the ideal amount of water throughout the year.
A few weeks ago Jane and Nick attended an Irrigation System Design Course in Glastonbury, by Feed Avalon. Their places were kindly provided free. Feed Avalon is a social enterprise dedicated to developing food systems that are socially and economically empowering in order to build food resilience.
Postcode Local Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery. Huge thanks to volunteer Elaine who organised the grant application.
