Rob Hopkins did a brilliant piece on the Radio Four programme Four Thought, and we were delighted that he mentioned Norwich FarmShare as an example of 'engaged optimism'. You can listen to the show or read notes from it on his blog. I found the whole show a really moving and inspirational account of what Transition thinking can enable.
Spring is rapidly gathering pace and that brings a whole host of jobs needing doing on the farm. We’d like to invite you (and your friends and families) to come along for a fun day out on the farm: Our next workday is Saturday 10th March, 11.00 to 15.00. Tierney will be compiling a list of jobs which need doing, so I don't yet quite know what the day will involve, but it's sure to be fun.
We’ll give you any training and equipment you need on the day, all you need to bring are plenty to drink (it’s thirsty work this farming), something for lunch and good sturdy clothing and footwear. Getting stuck in to a good day’s work alongside like-minded people is one of the best bits of Norwich FarmShare. Everyone is welcome and there's no need to let us know beforehand. Just turn up on the day.
More details here. Hopefully see you in a sunny field soon! Elena Judd
