Gardening Training
Wednesday, 01 July 2015
Swansea Community Farm will be commencing a series of Gardening courses on Wednesday 1 July as part of its Grow Local Project funded by City and County of Swansea.

New Gardening Trainer, Witchhazel Wildwood, who started working at the Farm in June will be showing local people how to improve their gardening skills to enable them to grow their own food at home.


Talking about starting her new job at the Farm, Witchhazel said: “I wanted to get involved in the Grow Local Project as I think it is a fantastic project reconnecting people with the food we eat, understanding more about where food comes from and showing people how they can grow food in their own homes.  It’s really easy to begin to grow food even on a windowsill and our taster courses which are running throughout August are a fantastic way of finding out how. 


Today sees the start of our 6 week Agored Cymru Productive Gardening OCN and we will be running further 12 week courses in the autumn.  I am really looking forward to getting stuck in and growing some fantastic food over the coming months.”  She added. 


Witchhazel will be running taster courses at the Farm over the coming months as well as offering some valuable skills to regular volunteers at the Farm.


If you are interested in coming along to the Farm’s taster days in August, give Witchhazel a ring at the Farm on 01792 578384.  


 

 
Farm Appeal 2015
Tuesday, 14 April 2015

Help us raise £50,000 this year!  The Farm launched its 2015 'Your Farm Needs You' Appeal at the Spring Festival on Saturday 4 April. The Appeal aims to raise as much cash as possible to keep us running for the future.

Talking about the Appeal, Farm Director Phil Budd said: "Charities are increasingly feeling the pressure of raising money to keep them going and we are no different.  Much of our income comes from grants which are becoming harder to get, so we need to raise extra money through running events, selling produce, delivering courses and from donations.  The money raised will go a long way to helping us to cover our basic running costs and provide a financial buffer to help us keep growing into the future".
