Horsepower for FlintShare

6

to Simon and Rachel Farr with their plough horse, Boxer. The Farrs have joined us to grow for the VegShare scheme at Cilcain. The beautiful and sturdy Boxer will lend a hoof to the project. He will be much kinder to the land than a tractor, not to mention all that lovely fertility delivered straight to the site! The basic plan is that 20 sharers will share the costs (under £10.50 per week) and contribute four hours per month on site to work alongside Simon and Rachel (and sometimes Boxer, of course). As their ‘dividend’ the sharers split the harvest equally between them. This will provide local, organically grown, fresh veg weekly for two people - great value and much more fun than the supermarket! Sharers will be members of FlintShare which has many benefits such as free pick your own fruit, social events with like-minded people, workshops and more. There are still a few shares available but you need to be quick as the scheme needs to start in Feb to get the ground ready. To find out more check out the website at www.flintshare.co.uk Email flintshire_csa@hotmail.co.uk or call Nikki on 01352 810622 : We will be pruning the orchard at Northop on Saturday, 16th Feb with experts on hand to teach us how to do it right. Everyone welcome.
