Share local veg harvest?

This may interest you especially if you live in Wivenhoe, Brightlingsea, Great Bentley, Alresford, Frating or Thorrington.

You are invited to find out more about a new enterprise - a Community Supported Agriculture scheme being set up locally. CSA is where members have a weekly share of locally grown vegetables.

Come along to the William Loveless Hall, High St, Wivenhoe (back room) on Thursday 8th March from 7.30 to 9pm and meet Danny and Meg, market gardeners who previously grew for the Canalside CSA. (pictured)

For more inspiration here are some videos of the Camel CSA in Cornwall

CSA's typically involve members in different ways to suit both producer and community - perhaps to help at busy times of the year or on a more regular basis, and usually members can enjoy open days and a chance to learn and find out more about how food is produced, as well as enjoy social events and seasonal celebrations.
