Three weeks ago, I told you of how I’ve settled in to the office here at the Fordhall Community Land Initiative; three weeks later, I can confidently give you a rundown of what’s been going on around me recently.
First of all, our 3rd annual Music & Beer Festival is just around the corner, and we’ve been doing all sorts to spread the word. Posters, flyers and huge banners are now in place in the local area, and we’re feeling excited. What’s more, this Friday, Becca will be blogging the official band line-up. We hope to see you there, and remember: with our marquee, it’s a rain or shine event!
Beth’s Wildlife Activities on a Thursday have also been going down a treat! This Thursday (the 16th) will be Pond Dipping, and there will be activities going on until the end of the month, so you’ve still got chance to get the kids out and about and interested in the great outdoors this summer! We have lots of events going on; just visit http://www.fordhallfarm.com/fordhall_events.php to find out what’s happening.
So far, I feel I have picked up a lot of skills and improved existing ones. My communication skills have been enriched with consistent use of emails and using the phone. I’ve also had a chance to be creative, making various posters and flyers to different things. Another thing I have grown accustomed to is Fordhall’s house style, such as colours and designs used on promotional material.
I will blog again on my last week to let you all know about the experience as a whole. Until then, make the most of the summer!
We are young and determined people assisted by over hundreds of volunteers who have come together to ensure this beautiful traditional countryside is saved. We are increasing the rich biodiveristy of the farm and helping to educate people about the pasture to plate cycle. Demonstrating that small-scale farming connected to the local community can offer a viable way of life for generations to come.
