Burscough Community Farm Launch Event


Wed 24th Feb, 3pm-8.30pm at The Grove Youth & Community Centre, Station Approach, Burscough, L40 0RZ

To celebrate the launch of Burscough Community Farm (formerly Organic Veg Club), we will be holding an exhibition and series of presentations. We want to show the community what Burscough Community Farm is about and the opportunities it will offer you.

Burscough Community Farm is not just about growing food. It also supports many local initiatives including: encouraging wildlife, increasing biodiversity, learning about Permaculture, volunteering opportunities, improving health and developing wellbeing.

Drop in any time during the event. Refreshments available.
