March on The Farm

end of March 2016

It’s the end of March, the end of summer.  A crazy, produce filled summer!

We’ve done the calculations and can tell you that in March we saw 689 people through our gate and gathered 424 loaves of bread, 1782 rolls, 2640 kilos of gathered produce and we grew 761 kilos ourselves.

Our veggie box deliveries to elders are being very well received – remember if you know someone who might benefit from a home delivery of fresh produce each week get in touch.  We are LOVING doing the deliveries in Burnie and Wynyard.

Burnie HIPPY group visiting PttP on The FarmWe had the most delightful visit from the Burnie HIPPY group – nothing says joy like 20 or so kiddies with their mums wandering through The Farm smelling herbs, feeding alpacas and chooks, planting seeds and harvesting potatoes and nachis!  If you have a group who might like to visit head over here to make an initial enquiry.

Our awesome new chook house is almost complete and I have heard we might be getting some new silkies to replace the ones that “disappeared”.  Hopefully these will stay with us much longer.

PTTP Inc held its AGM and our wonderful board member’s details can be seen over here.

We also managed to put in one awesome grant application and if we are successful it will mean just SO MUCH GOOD for PttP.  Cross everything for us? We will find out in July if we have been successful.

If you would like to support our work you can head over to Give Now to make a donationWe are ALL about fresh produce, food access with dignity for all.

And now, we would very much like some rain, lots of it – a rain dance might be in order!

Grow, gather, give and love the one you’re with xx

Sunday Soup

The cold snap on Monday where the expected 17 degree day only just hit 8.5 really put me in the mood for soup…and uggs!
