AGM 2017 - Cropped

Site update

Towards the end of the Feasibility Study process, the consultants recommended the Intwood Carr Meadow site in Cringleford as the most suitable option for FarmShare. Unfortunately, this site is no longer available due to unforeseen changes with the land owners’ situation.

We are currently in discussion with the Council regarding Valpy Avenue allotment site (one of the shortlisted 5 sites in the study). The site currently totals around 1 acre split across a few plots (with the potential for expansion). The site is highly accessible, with good soil and aspect, and various structures in place. The Council can offer support in a variety of ways and FarmShare could work in partnership with other organisations on the site to offer additional educational sessions.

Rosalind and Emma are also continuing conversations with Easton & Otley College about the potential for either a site for field-scale veg or educational outreach work.
