Loughborough Farm's first project

Matt planting cabbages on Saturday at The Loughborough Farm's first site on Loughborough Road.

The Loughborough Farm is a Loughborough Junction Action Group led community growing project.

The aim is to locate under-used and derelict pieces of land in the Loughborough Junction area for food growing for local consumption and sale. The project is volunteer led but 20 “Grow Leaders” will be offered training with the prospect of eventual employment. The farm has been allocated its first two sites: one is a large plot on Loughborough Road opposite Wyck Gardens, the other is a smaller site on Minet Road near Loughborough Primary School.

The farm was officially launched on Saturday 31 August 2013, but we are holding a number of smaller taster events to introduce the farm and the farm’s project officer Emily Myers to the community.
