We're starting to recieve seeds and in another two weeks we'll be transplanting our first lettuce and peas. This is the start of the busiest time of the year, we're working the soil, then sowing seeds and transplanting seedlings whenever its not raining.
I was wondering if anyone wanted to come and join me during these busy days. It's not glamorous work, but I always found that sitting on the transplanter with a friend on a sunny day and planting crops that we'll get to eat was certainly not a chore.
When we're using the transplanter we'll need one person to drive the tractor then two people to sit behind and handle the seedling. This work starts mid April and goes on until mid July or so (if the weather co-operates). Eventually we'll need help weeding as well, so if you're particularly skilled in that area then don't worry - you'll have your chance! And if you have any other skills that you'd like to lend then drop me a line. Laura Creen
In the future volunteering for Norwich FarmShare will perhaps change but for the moment if you're interested you can contact me via email: email@example.com or mobile: 07983 506 500. Ideally I'm looking for someone that's available for between 4 and 8 hours, and whether it's weekdays or weekends just let me know.
