As follows below is COCA’s update for January.  Rhiannon is currently on travels in France for a while so I’ll be doing for the updates now.

January has been typically quiet time on the farm this year with no volunteers staying and not too much work in the field either.  We’ve been harvesting oriental greens from the polytunnels and they are growing well despite the lack of sunshine.  We are also still getting lots of sprouts from the field and Swiss chard too.  Although there has not been too much activity outside, the growing team has been busy with the crop plan for the year ahead (which is to be put on our website).  Our events team have also been busy too and organised a Burns Night in a local village on the 28th January (two photos attached).  It was a tremendous success with over eighty people coming to celebrate this Scottish tradition and raised over £600 towards COCA funds.  We were lucky to find a wonderful band for a ceilidh and a bag piper too!
