Paint part of the CropShare weeder. We would like our cropsharers to feel happy when they use the weeder. You will be allocated a section of the weeder to paint in any style you want - pretty flowers, abstract designs, wild graffitti etc. You will need to be able to attend the farm in Lode on one Saturday probably in April - details to follow. We will supply a selection of coloured paints and the brushes, but you will need old clothes.
