We need to raise £12,000 to bring water and electricity onto the farm site.
This will mean we can:
- scale up our community growing giving more local people access to the health and social benefits of being involved in the production and consumption of fresh local food
- install accessible toilets and hand washing facilities which are essential for all our visitors and volunteers
- look after animals permanently on the site – we hope to have chickens, goats and other small animals and visiting larger animals like our lovely pigs-on-loan.

We have some great rewards on offer!
Our artist-designed ‘Goat on a Tote’ bags and ‘Fowl on a Towel’ tea towels….
…..and various courses offered by local specialists in woodworking, foraging and bee keeping, and yummy rewards from Wild Honey, LAM Brewing and Brightwell Vineyard as well as special tours of the site and a one-off opportunity to ‘name our bog’ and first container building.
