We have two new members of staff to introduce and welcome to the farm.
Chloe is our Grants and Fundraising Officer, which is a new post. She has just recently joined the farm from Brentry & Henbury Children’s Centre. She has previously worked with Human Rights Watch, Global Witness and as a journalist at Reuters. She has two small daughters who love visiting the farm, and their current favourites are the visiting billy goat and the very shouty duck.
Karen is our new Wellbeing Growing Facilitator. She had been working in international charities up to now. During the COVID lockdowns she was lucky enough to have an allotment where she spent a lot of her time. After that she decided she wanted to be a gardener full time. She had been volunteering at Grow Wilder – a community garden in Bristol – for about a year and started gardening full time this year. She works three days a week at Prior Park, a National Trust garden in Bath, and two days with LWCF. She loves growing things, especially fruit and veg. Karen said ‘It’s been great getting to know the site and volunteers at LWCF and I’m really enjoying it. Looking forward to seeing what we can do with all the space we have!’
