We finally found time this weekend to give the most recent @cambsedition a good read from cover to cover - and you can do so online.
The publication has always been great at championing local and independent businesses, and their 'Indie of the month' feature is an organisation that means a lot to us here at M&J Abbs Ltd.
The Prospects Trust at Snakehall Farm is an 18 acre organic farm based in rural Cambridgeshire. The farm specialises in providing therapeutic horticulture to people with learning difficulties, disabilities and those with varying health needs.
The co-workers learn and grow in a safe and supportive environment, spend time outside and form strong working relationships and friendships. "The real joy of the Prospects Trust is that our co-workers can really see the results of their hard work in the vegetables that we produce and sell". The trust has also recently opened a shop in Ely, the @prospects_unwrapped which sells the organic produce from the farm as well as other local and organic produce with zero waste packaging.
The shop - which is also a cafe, offers zero-waste refills on items such as pulses, nuts, seeds and grains, as well as liquid cleaning products, laundry detergents and hair and body washes.
Currently, in light of government medical advice the co-worker placements have been suspended but the farm is still working hard to grow produce and the Ely shop is offering an online booking and delivery service to anyone within a 5 mile radius of the store.
See prospectstrust.org.uk for more details.
