Holly Hagg - local sustainable community farm!

This opportunity takes place on 20 Nov 2021

Holly Hagg is a small community farm in Crookes, which exists to bring people and nature together in a sustainable way. We run alpaca treks, community vegetable growing and wellbeing visits for special needs groups. Over the winter we need to work hard keeping our site safe for visitors and our animals happy, so take action for sustainability and help out on this activity day! Tasks include making paths safe, clearing weeds, tidying up and scooping up alpaca poo! You will get to meet our lovely animals too - we have alpacas, mini pigs, poultry and rabbits. Saturday 20th November, 1.30pm - 4.30pm
