New Classroom almost ready

Our new classroom will shortly be ready for use.  Our thanks to World of Football for donating the portakabin. Derek Clark and his team at D J Clark Decorators have done a great deal of work renovating and painting inside and out.  We will now have a homely and cosy base for the project, which will last us many years.

Working Party So Far

We have had a couple of very busy days with our working party. We are delighted with the turnout and progress made to date.

All the raised beds have been painted with preservative.  They now look like new.

Spring clean for raised beds

The compost bins now have fronts, which will keep all the material inside and give plenty of ventilation.

Two more beds have been dug over and are ready for use.

The seating area is well under way.  The soil has been shifted, the site levelled and we have started to barrow in the hardcore.

Will that do?

 

 

A lot of work has been done on tidying up the site.  Wherever possible, material has been recycled.

Working Party

Our next working party is on 6/7/8 May from 09:30 – 16:00 each day. Please can you help us?

We have been very busy at Craigies this year, but need to complete some work, before we can look at the next stage and prepare ourselves for two public openings – The Farm Open Day on 5 June and The Power of Food Festival on 18 and 19 June.

Please can you give us some of your time to help us? Some, but not all will require physical effort.

The main task will be to build the common area, which will allow us to add tables, benches and a barbecue to the site.

We will also be planting up hanging baskets for the High Street and for sale in the shop. This one our main sources of income.

The site needs a good clean up and there will be some digging of new plots, ready for groups to take on.

Please try to come along, even if it is just to see the changes.

To aid our planning, please can you let us know if you are likely to help and when you might come along?
