Every person on the planet has 2000m2 of arable ground to grow food.
Whitmuir Community Farm is an organic farm in Scotland. Local communities can come see what 2000 m² looks like and what we can grow on it here in Scotland. 377 community volunteers and 495 school children and teachers have taken part and counting…
Together on the Whimuir Farm 2000 m² project we are:
• Helping grow the vegetables outside on the 2000 m² plot and in our polytunnels;
• Starting up a new rural food waste collection for recycling and composting;
• Teaching how to cook seasonally and use leftovers;
• you can learn about pickling and preserving…all reducing food waste
We’re aiming to save 30 Tonnes of carbon over a year.
We’re also working with West Linton and Newlands Primary School communities.
Come and join us! Anyone who is interested can come along and help grow the produce. In exchange volunteers get to share the lovely harvest!
