The Hurdsfield Challenge

Food4Macc enjoyed a successful day at Hurdsfield County Primary School where the mission was to do a one day ‘makeover’ of the eight existing raised beds. 
 
Despite the inclement weather, Food4Macc volunteer turnout was excellent (Emma, Neil, Stuart, Sara, Phil C, Phil P and Bill), ably assisted by Andrew and Andy from Hurdsfield – not to mention Celia, the Head, who did sterling work keeping the troops well looked after with refreshments. 
 
The profusion of deeply rooted weeds proved to be very physically challenging. Food4Macc donated seedlings and bushes to help ‘kick-start’ a new food-growing initiative at the school. 
We hope to keep in touch to see how they progress.
