Growing Newsome and Stirley Farm 2012 - a year in pictures

902

Published on

A year of growing and sharing food together in Newsome - at our community allotment, at Stirley Farm and in lots of other places across our community.

2012 was a lousy year for growing weather, but a great year for growing friendships. We shall remember it fondly.
