Visit your surprisingly local farm on Open Farm Sunday (9th June)

Reposted from here

On Sunday 9th June, hundreds of farms will be opening to the public so they can get closer to farming and see for themselves where their food comes from, how it is produced and learn more about farming and the fabulous job it does. Tucked away, in an unexpected corner of Stockport, Woodbank Community Food Hub provides a taster of what a better food and farming future looks like.

Now in its 14th year, Open Farm Sunday offers a unique chance to see what happens beyond the farm gate and show your support for British farming. This is your opportunity to meet the farmers and learn more about organic farming and to talk to members of the Kindling Trust (who run the food hub) about their plans for a fairer food system. Discover answers to the questions you’ve always wanted to ask … as well as some you’ve never even thought of!

Come and join us at Woodbank Community Food Hub for Open Farm Sunday and learn more about how local, affordable, organic vegetables are grown and sold from this small plot of brownfield land in Stockport, learn why compost and biodiversity are so important for the soil on the farm, and how we are incubating new farmers to start a career in organic farming. On the day you can also find out about our future farm plans around Greater Manchester and  how you can get involved.

Throughout the day there will be guided tours around the farm – which are a perfect way to discover all about local organic farming for yourself.
