On-the-field activities for Summer.

We are in a very busy period where we are constantly planting and harvesting. All help is appreciated!

Weekdays

  • Tuesday and Friday mornings - Harvesting
  • Monday, Wednesday and Thursday - please contact Becca info@fiveacrefarm.org.uk to arrange a session.

Saturdays (weather dependent)

There is a volunteer session every Saturday from 10am - 1pm. Below are some of the programmed activities in the near future. Other Saturday sessions will be working on the many regular jobs which need doing at this time of year.
* Saturday 15 June - More seed sowing. There is a lot to sow to feed everyone.
* Saturday 22 June - Solstice celebration. More info closer to the time.
* Saturday 6 July - Garlic harvest. Usually a good workout in hot weather.
* Saturday 7 September - Potato harvest. Always good fun gathering in the crop.

Volunteer jobs vary with the weather and season but include things like weeding, watering, harvesting, podding beans, putting seeds in trays, pricking out seedlings, planting out small plants and many more. We can normally find something to suit your physical ability so please do come along.
