New Job!

I was delighted to be offered a new job as Scotland Development Worker with the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens to be based at Gorgie City Farm, which is ten minutes away from where I live. I had a good feeling in the interview, I was asked to wait in the garden and then the interview took place in a room with an animal mural on one wall and sheep, goats and horses in the fields outside! I start in a few weeks and probably will have a week off between jobs.

Sounds like a great job--I would like to see the sensory herb garden. We raise about 35 different kinds coupled with about 50 wildflowers--congratulations

Thanks everyone.

Rabbits Guy - they're popular because they bring children and older people in inner city areas in contact with animals. They've got rabbits too...
