In an attempt to keep you better informed we're going to try and post a weekly update of all our on and off farm activity. As we sat down to put together our newsletter we realised we simply had TOO MUCH to tell you!
We’ve weathered the freak August deluge and things are starting to bloom down at Future Feeders HQ. We’re planting, rat-proofing, hoeing, trellising, composting, weeding and even harvesting from our humble but blossoming market garden.
While we love being busy it’s pretty easy to be distracted in the midst of so many opportunities popping up, not to mention the butterflies flying past… We’re certainly recognising the importance of straightening out our priorities. We’ve even bought ourselves a whiteboard. Obviously, this means business.
Last Sunday as we soaked up the sun weeding our mint patch a lovely Colombian woman wandered by. We had a friendly chat before she went on her way… only to return five minutes later and ask if she could join in. She spent about half an hour alongside us shovelling compost onto our welcoming mint bed. It’s moments like these that capture the beauty of small scale urban farming. So simple and so rewarding - turning strangers into friends through shared experience.
Sunday sessions are our open invitation to you to come a join us at FFHQ and get a feel for what this is all about.
