Thank-you so much.

Dear Friends - some of whom we know, and some of whom we have not met - thank-you all very much for your very kind donations, and support of the project. Thank-you also for your help in spreading the word about us.

With your help, we managed to raise a total of £2,374 ( minus crowdfunder fees). This will enable us to start on the next stage of improving facilities at the Land, so we can welcome more people there in the future. Perhaps you will be one of those people!

If you have asked for any seeds, books, or calendars, they will be dispatched in the very near future.

If you have asked for a tour of the Land, a yoga class, or wild camping, please be in touch to arrange a date (preferably in the warmer weather!). You can contact me at pfaf@theferns.info, or on 01208-873554.

Many thanks, once again.

All the best, from Plants for a Future, Cornwall
