Symonds & Sampson are proud to supply signage to Poundbury Community Farm on the outskirts of Dorchester. This enterprising project was the brainchild of Transition Town Dorchester, with the support of the Duchy of Cornwall. Many hardworking volunteers have worked tirelessly on the 2 acre site, building a polytunnel, making raised beds, planting fruit trees, creating a pond, a forest garden, and a home for bees, geese and hens.
Peter Grout-Smith and Ryan Holmes of Symonds and Sampson enjoyed a tour of the farm, hosted by Kate Forrester, Secretary of Transition Town Dorchester and Di Ashmore, whose stunning artwork is featured on the signage, and volunteer Len Herbert.
The Community Farm is open to all. During lockdown particularly, many local residents found pleasure through sharing growing space, tools, knowledge, ideas and work, and harvesting produce together, and more hands are always welcome.
