Deen City Farm Joins the Foodival!


Louisa Loakes at Deen City Farm said that she'd love to help out with the festival and has started growing veg for local restaurants to cook on the day. Louisa provided vegetables and even eggs at last years event and is looking forward to this years festival - "Count the garden project in!" she said as well as suggesting fun childrens activities such as making animals out of local produce which is a fantastic idea! If you have any ideas for the event or any other comments please mail me at giles@cen.org.uk and please visit Deen City Farm's website here for info and how to visit this amazing urban farm.
