It will be no surprise for you to hear that we are always on the lookout for new volunteers to help with the growing on the farm. As the growing season progresses there is plenty of work to do, but not all of it is backbreaking.

There are jobs for everyone whatever your ability. Sure, there is planting, hoeing, weeding and harvesting, but there are also gentler jobs such as sowing seeds, watering and looking after the paperwork. Perhaps you don’t fancy getting your hands in the soil, we always have DIY tasks to do, putting together cold frames, repairing fences etc..

If you havn’t done any growing before but want to learn, teaching our growing techniques are part of my job at Greenslate Farm and I can take you through all the stages of the process.

I am usually on the farm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Fridays so call in and say hello.

Neil, the Greenslate Grower
