Garden & Estate

Our tasks are threefold. Firstly, we supply the Sharpthorne Organic Café with soft fruit and apples mostly grown by us in the Hoathly Hill garden. Currently we grow a lot of raspberries, blackcurrants and gooseberries, much of which is made into jam or juice, with the involvement of the students. We also supply small quantities of seasonal vegetables to the Café and to the Pericles households.

Secondly we mow the grass and maintain the paths around the Pericles workshop and office area, as well as the car park and some other areas of Hoathly Hill.

Thirdly we make biodynamic compost for the whole of Hoathly Hill, caring for the composting process and for the compost and burning heap area.
