Wow, what a year!

We can't believe how much has happened since we started the farm a year ago.
We have seen goats born, chicks and ducklings hatch, eaten our own eggs, reared our own rare-breed pork, eaten delicious free-range chicken, cleared masses of brambles and fallen trees, had a wedding at the farm, met Danni Dexter, built raised veg. beds, and the list goes on....

This year we hope to cram in just as much, if not more!

The students at Kadesh have participated in every step of the work and have enjoyed it and hopefully benefitted from it in many ways.

This Summer our plan is to be in a position to open the farm to the community on Saturdays. The idea being that families can come up to the farm, meet the animals, have a picnic or a barbeque and just have a special community place to relax and enjoy nature.

We intend to create: a nature trail through the orchard, a duck pond, an ornamental lily pond, a compostable toilet, a goats' play area, a tree house, a greenhouse, a herb garden, and so many more things that we might not get around to doing this year!

If you are interested in being involved in any aspect of the Kadesh Community Farm project, please call Andi or Steve for more information on 07941 333455 or the DC3 office on 01379 644223.



Saturday, 20th March, Saturday, 17th April & Saturday, 15th May.

Spring is on its way and we have big plans for the farm project this year!

During 2009, the farm has provided the Kadesh students with hours of worthwhile activity.

In 2010, our aim is to open the farm on Saturdays during the summer for families to enjoy the picnic area and meet the animals.

In the run-up to Summer we will be doing things like making a duck pond, putting up a greenhouse, digging up tree stumps, painting gates etc. etc.

There is a job to suit everyone!

If you are able to help for a day (9.30 ‘til 4), or just an hour or two, we would be very happy to see you!

BBQ at lunchtime!
