Farnham Community Farm


Vegetable growing

Our volunteers help with all manner of growing tasks; we have something to suit all abilities. Things our volunteers get up to in the field include:

Sowing seeds in the polytunnel
Potting on plants
Planting out seedlings in the field
Preparing the soil for planting, either by hand or using our 'pedestrian' tractor
Weeding and tidying up the crops
Harvesting the crops; picking and digging up the veg required that week
Weighing out veg for each member's bag
Building infrastructure i.e. putting up a shed
Topping up vegetable beds with manure or compost

Every Tuesday and Thursday our volunteers come to the field.

Tuesday 10am-4pm we concentrate on tasks involving growing the veg.

Thursday 8am-4pm we harvest the veg for that week.

Tea break and lunch break are an important part of the day! Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided.

To volunteer with Farnham Community Farm you just need to sign up as a supporter member for £2/month.

You can of course come and try out volunteering with us first, before you sign up as a supporter member.
