I am fairly new to the area and am setting up a market garden that will also become a care farm when we are all set up. I think we have the land, and can move on in around 2 months from now (Oct)
It will be a no dig set up - so masses of cardboard and compost, and we will need to find wood to build supports for the raspberries, asparagus and other produce.
We are starting with nothing but the plants, and seeds, and some pots, and are looking for the following if you have some or know where we can go to get it?
Masses of plain cardboard
Around 50 tons of preferably organic compost
Wood for various projects including trellising, plant supports, and building.
Pallets - around 20
A large shed
Kettles, fridge, cooker, shelving, old tables
And most important of all, extra hands!
The land is in Dalton on Tees, and our budget is very small so picking up large objects may be a challenge.
If anything above peeks your interest, please do get in touch.
The Care Farm will be helping those with PTSD and anxiety, and we hope to be up and running in 2020.
Any questions or info, look forward to hearing from you soon!
