CCF Spring

Cloughjordan community farm – spring growth Pat and the volunteers have been working hard through the winter, and with the arrival of spring the world has turned green once again; the trees are budding, the flowers are showing their faces to the sun as it peeks through the cloudy skies, awaiting the precious sunlight and sweet, cool rainfall. A new photo gallery is in the future of the CCF website, or so we hope, so keep a watch out for that when it arrives!
