Skinning the Polytunnels

Another weekend, another polytunnel building party. It was all about skinning the polytunnel frames this time, which was literally like working in a greenhouse in the extraordinary hot, humid weather. Kitchen Garden People leader, Emma Mills, describes how, ‘The outside jobs were the easy ones, fiddly, but with fresh air...the inside was essentially the Kitchen Garden Sauna...a totally new concept in detoxifying.’


Ian and the team at FarmED provided reinforcements, and Ian also talked to the volunteers about how their hard work is helping to support FarmED’s mission to promote regenerative agriculture and sustainable food systems. 


The polytunnels are now ready to grow anything from tomatoes to salad leaves, depending on the season, helping to supply 120 families with farm fresh veg throughout the year.
