Well well well!

We are working towards the re-commissioning of our agricultural farm well. It has been tested for safety and water flow and these tests show it has the capacity to supply the farm with 100% of the water requirements for livestock, crops, polytunnels, farmhouse and farmyard. This is an important step in our bid to become a model for sustainable agriculture.

How the funding will be spent

We need to raise a total of £5700 to allow us to use the water from our well to grow veg in our Market Garden and to provide drinking water for our 300 hens and future livestock. £2700 is needed to create a pressurized pump system which would give us well water at mains pressure within our market garden field. £3000 would be used for the 6ft x 4ft x 7ft , weather-proof well house, this includes all labour and materials.

How this will benefit the community

The addition of a well house with associated pump will enable us to use a natural, clean water source to grow our crops. The saving we will make in having this watering system will further enable us to provide fresh, naturally grown vegetables to the community of West Penwith at an affordable price. It will also provide an educational showpiece to visiting school groups and volunteers in the importance of water saving and harvesting.
