A Message from Sue Sutton , Volunteer

“I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy volunteering at the communigrow field. For me the benefits are having the chance to be outside when most of my week is spent commuting and being inside.  I enjoy the fresh air and the exercise, more importantly it gives me an opportunity to work quietly and gain some much needed “head space”.

 

“I have met lovely people and I am learning new things all the time including discovering vegetables I have never heard of.  Which is handy being a vegetarian. Lots of new food to try!

It’s especially nice to be able to give something back to the community.
