They have been learning about what we do here in our fields, fundraising and coming up with some great ideas to promote eating healthily. Launching #SELFIEwithaveg. Thank you to them and the Surrey and Hants News for covering our search for new land to be able to continue this fantastic project on their front page this week.

Our next…Continue Reading “Rabbit Fencing update”
