Dear Friends and Volunteers
Many of you participated in the potato harvest last season as part of National Seva Day.
Spring season is already upon us and over the last few weekends, many volunteers have come and started planting new seeds in pots in the farm greenhouses ready for follow on planting in the fields when baby plants have matured sufficiently in pots.
To date we have planted more than 7,000 seeds in pots with our target of 20,000 in the next 4 weeks – a lot of enthusiastic help is clearly needed and most welcome. This activity is suitable for almost all ages as it is mainly in the greenhouse with pot labelling, filling pots with compost and placing one seed in each pot.
However Sunday 25th March is a special day and we need lots of helpers to plant new baby potato seedlings directly in the potato field.
A group of 60 can cover the whole field in a few hours – so more help the merrier. A warm lunch will be provided from approximately 1:30pm.
For Sunday 25th March, we will meet by the entrance to the farm near the main Temple car park for 10am.
You can email me if you plan to come. This is an ideal activity for individuals, friends and families.
As a general note. the farm welcomes help every Sundays and please feel free to join us anytime from 10am onwards. We generally break for lunch around 1:15pm.
As usual you are also welcome to spend as much time as you can spare. We welcome families friends and children (suitable from 7 years).
For groups or individuals who wish to help either on Saturdays that can be arranged too.
Please feel free to pass the email on to all who may be interested to help out.
