A day on the farm

Sometimes it’s good to get out of the office, away from the screens and try something a little different. Recently, we took some time out to help at the Oxford City Farm - a community led organisation providing opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to engage with agricultural activities and build strong community ties.

While not everyone from Agile could join, Aaron, Dan, Finn, Liam, Linda, Richard and Stephen did their best to represent. As no day out is complete without some friends, we invited some of our partners to take part - Gemma from Common Knowledge, Mel from Code-Operative and Lucy from InFact.

We painted some sheds, prepped some walls, scythed some paths, fed some animals and we even built a greenhouse using up-cycled materials. Overall, it was an excellent day out - sunshine and all!

Thanks to Phil, Maria and Tim from the Oxford Farm for getting all your help and for Gemma, Mel and Lucy for joining us!
