We’re a feature of Cornwall lifePosted on September 7th, 2009 No comments
Various pioneering efforts to grow our own food in the far south-west are put under the spotlight in the September issue of the magazine Cornwall Life.
It reveals how our community project is helping Cornwall play a leading role in the Making Local Food Work programme led by the Plunkett Foundation. As Jan Trefusis of the foundation says:
Cornwall really is the star of this programme, with a high proportion of our uptake for the project coming from across the region.
The article emphasises how community supported agriculture can offer a sustainable way of producing local and seasonal food where the rewards and risks are shared between grower and consumer.
It describes Cornwall’s other emergent CSAs at Harrowbarrow near Callington and in the Lamorna valley and at Lowarth Brogh near Land’s End. It tells us about plans to set up similar projects at Trevalon Organic Vegetables at Herodsfoot, Liskeard and on a farm near Launceston.
Traci Lewis of the Soil Association adds:
Who knows what can be achieved when we all start supporting each other more? We look forward to working with more landowners, farmers, growers and communities in Cornwall to find out.Media coverage camel community supported agriculture, community supported agriculture, cornwall, grow your own, local food, making local food work, st kew highway, volunteers
