Nick and Eleanor went to this conference in the Norfolk Heritage Park on 20 March to meet others involved in growing local food and hear about the city’s plans for developing a Sheffield Food Strategy. It was inspiring and encouraging as well as great to meet others working towards the same goals. There are the makings for some excellent networks for sharing lessons and ideas!
A gathering of Crosspool Harvest growers came together on 13 March to plant our first seeds ready for having some land! The focus was on herbs and also on distributing some rhubarb plants that Eleanor and Helen had been able to secure (with Council permission) from some unused allotments.
While the adults chatted, younger Harvesters climbed, swang, ate biscuits and admired Flossie’s white rabbit – Dennis.
A great start to our project!
