The Elderfarm group currently does not have a constituted committee and therefore unable to apply for funds etc
There fore with no funds to pay for a website we are very glad to take advantage of the free site available from jimdo which is pretty good stuff
HOWEVER in the attempt to put all information up on site for the benefit of the public, we have not enough room so have had to divide the material up into different sites legup, elderfarm and elderfarm2
This is an experiment and hopefully will work
Meanwhile all information and discussion also available on Facebook Elderfarm Community Trust Group site and Elderfarm Community Garden Group site both of which are open to the public
minutes, photos and other documents can be found at these sites
