‘come and give me a hand in the garden son’ – ‘i’m busy Grandad’
I remember this a lot as a kid, my grandad was a farmer, and his family farmers….oh how he would be laughing now.
This all started about 3 years ago, a total direction change from the norm of sitting in front of a computer to getting my hands dirty. I’d seen and come across many articles regarding sustainable food, grow your own e.t.c and noticed a lot of abandoned buildings starting to pop up in our local town.
What if these could be used for an alternative use, growing produce, in a controlled environment….all Year round?….so the journey began.
As with every dream you have setbacks and obstacles, it soon became clear that it wasn’t going to be viable to use a building, certainly without paying fee’s that would hinder the startup of the project…many of those buildings are still empty though.
