Sally volunteers at St Pauls Trust. We spoke with her at the Balsall Heath City Farm Spring event.
I’m here today. I’m helping Friends of the Farm. I’ve joined Friends of the Farm after working at St. Pauls for over 20 years. I didn’t want to see the farm go so I’m here to try to make sure that we keep the funding safe, even though it is safe for the time being.
I started volunteering here over 30 years ago. My kids saw the farm and wanted me to help out. We used to come on a Saturday afternoons and feed the animals, lock them all away, chase the goats around and put the alarm on. I didn’t know who I was working for at the time until I got a bottle of wine and a tin of biscuits outside my front door. That’s where it all started and I’ve been here ever since.
