The organisation behind community run Kirkstall Valley Farm are appealing for helpers to clear the site following the recent floods.

Storm Franklin led to high water levels in the River Aire, with parts of the farmland off Kirkstall Road sitting under several feet of water as the Aire burst its banks.

Now the floodwaters have subsided, Kirkstall Valley Development Trust (KVDT) is appealing for members of the public to come forward and tidy up the farm and move some of the debris on the land.

A spokesperson said:

“We’re having a big volunteer effort this Saturday, 26 February, 10am-12pm. e-mail for more information, all welcome.”

Kirkstall Valley Farm’s vegetable box distribution service resumed as normal earlier this week.
