Norwich FarmShare - First Shares in the Harvest

Despite the near Saharan conditions endured early in the growing season FarmShare, Norwich's own community farm, has 5 acres of great looking vegetables at its Postwick site ready for harvest through the summer. Harvest shares started last week and have been greeted with enthusiasm by FarmShare members. That the vegetables are being shared only a few weeks later than originally planned is a testament to the hard work of head grower Laura, her assistant Tierney and team of irregulars.

FarmShare, which grew out of the Transition Norwich Food Group and is supported by local NGO East Anglia Food Link, has had a shaky start because of the weather but is really beginning to find its feet: almost 50 vegetable share holders (and rising) are now sharing the weekly harvest, meeting each other, volunteering on the farm, learning new skills and sharing their knowledge. There's enough space at Postwick to grow vegetables for over 100 people and the site has great potential for other activities - from training to beekeeping. Josiah Meldrum
