Feedback from a previous group:
“Thank you very much for our volunteering day at the Farm yesterday. The team loved it. The tour was incredibly interesting and informative. Everyone felt invigorated getting that huge mulch spread through the trees. We will send through photos once collated, and put a post up on Instagram soon. Many thanks again!”
