Getting a taste of the Deal Hop Farm project

I visited the Landmark Community Garden to get a taste of the Deal Hop Farm project.

The garden is one of hundreds signed up to the scheme, organised by local group Deal With It.

Volunteers distribute hop plants to members and give advice on how to look after them.

Later in the year the plants will be harvested and returned to the Ripple Steam Brewery – where the final product is made.

This is a fantastic project. People get out in the fresh air, make use of their gardens, learn new skills, and work together as a community. At the end of it all, we get to enjoy lovely local beer in some of our amazing pubs.

Deal continues to go from strength to strength and I applaud this latest brilliant idea from the Deal With It team.
