Norwich FarmShare renamed - Welcoming Laura

Norwich Community Agriculture has a new name: from now on we're going to be Norwich FarmShare. We changed the name because several people thought the old one was a bit of a mouthful. We hope you like the new name and feel that it sums up what we're about.

Also this month we welcome our new farm manager and grower, Laura Creen. Laura and her partner Dave have moved here from Cirencester, where Laura was a star student of the Soil Association's apprenticeship scheme. She learned her craft on an organic market garden supplying a farm shop. We know she's going to do a great job of managing our two vegetable growing sites, with support from William and the Environment and Growing Group.

We're looking for more helpers for a work day, likely to be on March 20th, where we'll be putting up a rabbit fence and skinning the polytunnel. Contact Erik for more information. And generally FarmShare is a hive of activity with the marketing, distribution, schools and environment groups all really getting into gear and making concrete steps towards producing and selling wonderful organic produce this summer. If you might be interested in subscribing for a weekly share of organic veg contact Tully (tully@transtionnorwich.org). Tully Wakeman
