Volunteers plant extra hedging to protect veg crops and increase biodiversity


February 9, 2022

Our volunteer growers have planted more than 40 metres of native hedging on our site at Treraven Farm and mulched it with a thick layer of woodchip. The extra hedgerows will protect our soil and veg crops from damaging winds while providing food and shelter for a wide variety of wildlife.

The hedging mixture is mainly hawthorn interspersed with plenty of hazel, bird cherry, dog rose, field maple and crab apple. It’ll have a long flowering period to attract pollinators followed by nutritious haws, hips, fruits and nuts.

Big thanks to volunteers Alex, Bryony, Charlotte, Claire, Francesca, Jo, Mark, Susan and Steve.

Fantastic turnout for Open Farm Sunday – despite rain


June 28, 2021

A HUGE thank you to everyone who ignored the weather forecast and came to our Open Farm Sunday event. The heavy rain held off during the first two guided farm walks led by head grower Mark Norman. Then the heavens opened for the final one and we all got soaked!

Visitors were specially interested in our climate and nature-friendly growing practices. They asked lots of questions about our no-dig methods that leave the soil undisturbed, protect growth-enabling organisms and nourish the vegetables.
