HELP US HARVEST WATER - MAKE DONATIONS TO RHUBARB FARM
Why not help Rhubarb Farm save 66,000 litres of water per year?
You can make a donation that counts.
We are very much in need of a water tank and pump in order to harvest water from the polytunnels. This will make a big difference to our mains water use and therefore save us money in the long run, as well as lessening our environmental impact, because 66,000 litres of water comes off the two polytunnels in a year!!!
We have been allocated 40% of the cost of the tank and pump through Nottingham University's Environmental Technology Centre. However, we need to raise another £3,043 in order to pay for the tank and pump.
Can you help us raise this? Make a donation.
