Wool week follow up!

Wool week has been a crazy time, jumping from one workshop to another...
We have made over 300 bunldes in the Clarendon Junior School, in Tidworth, project supported by the Tidworth Area Board,  and made another 100 in Wellington Academy, Tidworth.
We also managed to create another 20 Bundles with the recovering soldiers of Tedworth House who came to help me at the farm last Monday, as well as manage to wash another load of wool.

Finaly, we have made another 40 today at the farm with another 3 volunteers, to launch our Movember challenge; " Can't Grow it? come and make it!(see photos)

I look forward to see you at the farm during Movember;
