Fill Out Survey To Support Climate Friendly Food Project
Jenny Hall from Climate Friendly Foods:
I'm going to give it a good go to get five years funding for staff time to run the farm as a regional visitors education centre and opportunities for wellbeing for vulnerable groups. My strategy is an initial £10k Application to Heritage Fund to pay for the understory of the forest garden and filling gaps in the orchards whilst running pilot courses.
If this initial year is "proof of concept" then Heritage Fund are likely to enable me to apply for between £100k and £200k for five years funding to pay me full time and Kirsty part time (Kirsty is a registered nurse and counsellor so this will be run as a professional wellbeing service).
At this stage I need at least 100 people to fill the survey questionnaire to say they think it is a good idea.
