We’ve passed the minimum target!! We're bowled over by the response so far and truly grateful, and now excited to see if we can make it all the way to £38k! It will mean we can make sure the building meets our training needs even in the muddiest depths of winter. Keep on sharing… 4 days to go!

We're halfway there!! So grateful for all the contributions that have helped us get this far. In classroom terms we're halfway up the walls and still need to build the roof! (This pic is from Farms for City Children, the wellies in the cordwood wall are going to be bug hotels) Please keep on telling your friends and family to help get this building on the ground. https://hubbub.org/p/OrganicLea/
