This blog follows the progress of the development of the Market Garden at Greenslate Community Farm.

As the new Grower at Greenslate, I wanted to document my first season at the farm showing how we get the Market Garden up and running to provide enough food for the shop, the new cafe when it opens and a veg box scheme that we will be running from the farm.

Some growing at the farm has been trialled over the last few years but there is only a small amount of ground currently under production. It is very nearly a ‘blank canvas’ as I write this in January 2017 and it is going to be an exciting journey.
