Solar panels have been installed at Stirley Community Farm on the training barn and office building which will save Yorkshire Wildlife Trust around £500/year in electricity costs.
Stirley Community Farm has a lot of support from local people. They are training young people, providing local food and keeping the fields around Newsome both green and productive. This scheme will help them be more environmentally and economically sustainable. The more we can do to help the farm the more likely it will be that we can protect local fields from development for years to come and protect our local environment for future generations.
