Sutton Community Farm Comes to Town

7:31am Monday 6th February 2012

WIN A MONTH’S SUPPLY OF ULTRA-FRESH VEG FROM SUTTON COMMUNITY FARM Staff and volunteers from Sutton Community Farm are leaving the fields and coming to town this weekend, at Times Square Shopping Centre.

They’re looking for volunteers to help with a wide range of tasks at the farm in Telegraph Track, Wallington, this year – from sowing and growing to packing boxes for the farm’s hugely successful veg box scheme.

And they’ll also be holding a ‘Guess The Vegetable’ competition, asking shoppers to identify 10 different veg – with a prize of a month’s supply of ultra-fresh veg, straight from the farm.

“Sutton Community Farm is one of the area’s best-kept secrets, but we’re aiming to change all that,” said Anna Francis, Farm Manager. “We’ve already got 400 volunteers who come and work on the farm – now we want to spread the word so more and more people in Sutton realise the benefits of healthy growing and of loving local food.”
