New short film captures Farm life

New short film captures Farm life

We’re delighted with this new short film, ‘Community Growers’, all about Forty Hall Farm and the projects we do here.

The seven-minute long documentary was made by film student Dan Bone, who spent several months filming on the Farm. As well as capturing staff, volunteers and students at work, the film includes footage of community events and short courses, and even follows some of our veg as it journeys to restaurants and cafes across Enfield.

Thanks go to all the staff and volunteers who appear in the film, and of course to Dan himself!
