The Biodynamic Land Trust is delighted to announce its bid for an EU Leader grant for the new Centre at Huxhams Cross Farm has been successful.
As a result, local ecological builder, TerraPerma, has broken ground for the on-farm Centre’s foundations.
Awarded to support the rural economy, the grant will help the Biodynamic Land Trust fund the eco-build of the farm’s new Training and Wellbeing Centre.
The building will enable farm-to-fork cooking activities, on-farm fruit processing, and training in permaculture and biodynamic farming.
Biodynamic Land Trust Project Director, Gabriel Kaye, says:”After the hard work put in over the summer and autumn by the Apricot Centre and ourselves on the Leader grant application, we are delighted to hear that up-to 40% funding on key aspects of the build has been accorded. This will help fund the building and keep investment moving, but we still need to fundraise to complete the project. Well done to all involved.”
Please continue to invest for Huxhams Cross Farm Training and Wellbeing Centre, and a living working countryside.
