Kirkstall Valley Farm Needs £20,000.

If you favour the notion of a community-run farm, then you might want to consider contributing to the Kirkstall Valley Development Trust crowdfunder:

The farm is a 16 acre property situated north of Cardigan Fields, which has been farmed since the mid-twentieth century, although the last tenant farmer died in 2017.  The Trust has been offered the lease by the Council to make the farm a social and educational centre for the area.  The intention is also to supply fresh vegetables to the local community via a veg box scheme.

The money raised will buy equipment and ensure storage is constructed, as well as polytunnels.  There will also be a social area.  A grower will be appointed in 2020 and a team of volunteers is being put together.

The crowdfunder runs until the middle of January 2020
