Join us for our Open Day

Updated: Sep 13, 2018


Want to find out about your local community farm? Join us for music, workshops, farming activities, and of course... a famous FarmShare feast! We'll be kicking off at 11am until around 4pm on Saturday 15th September, come anytime.


Bring your own food to put on the barbecue for lunch at around 1.30pm - we’ll provide salads and puds. And please invite your friends! Help us spread the word so we can grow our farm and community.


Stalls will include honey, preserves, sensible swap shop, Hodmedod beans and more. Please bring your local / homemade wares to showcase and to sell!


There will be cooperative games permaculture style at various points in the day for adults and children - contributions welcome!
