It was realised late on this week that the work shares who normally take care of the harvesting were light on the ground so a call went out on Thursday evening and our members responded brilliantly. The majority of the crops were gathered together before both midday and the first cuppa!
A big thank you to Chris, Chris, Fania, Mike, Deborah, Amy, and new member Carole and her daughter Evie who did sterling work counting and displaying the radishes.
Of course, we couldn’t have done it without Friday regulars Sue and John keeping us on the right track!
The cooperative belongs to us all so it’s always great when our community spirit comes together on the field. Volunteering on the field isn’t just for all-hands days and doesn’t have to be for long so if you ever have a bit of spare time, particularly on a Friday from 10am-3pm or a Saturday morning from 10am then you’d be more than welcome. If you know in advance you’ll be coming, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org so Ian can plan his task list but even if you turn up unannounced you’ll never be turned away!
We also have volunteering opportunities with the Growing Gang, events, social media, advertising, and on our board of directors. There are certainly plenty of ways for us all to help our cooperative flourish.
