Hello Horton Community Farm

We were pleased to welcome Horton Community Farm to the garden last week. They are starting up their own project in Yorkshire.
Horton Community Farm is run by a group of local people. They are now established as a cooperative organisation, and registered as a limited company. They operate as a social enterprise, and any profit that is generated is invested straight back into the project.
The project will renovate the site to provide a safe environment for people in the local community to grow healthy food for local consumption. The site is around 5 acres in total area with 100 plots. Only around 10% of the total site appears cultivated. The remainder is currently derelict, with areas of weeds, brambles, undergrowth and native saplings. There is also a problem with fly-tipping, vandalism, theft and drug abuse.
To visit their website just click on this link http://hcf.org.uk

We wish you tonnes of luck for your project
and would love to hear about all its progress over the coming months! Lu and Flo
