    weeding carrots-camel csa 14-08-09We are now very close to submitting our final bids for grant funding for Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s growing-our-own-food project.

    We’re seeking financial support from the Lottery Local Food programme and from the East Cornwall Local Action Group, part of the South West Regional Development Agency.

    We have a clear idea of the sort of money we require to get the project up and running.  For example, in the first year we need: –

    • £12,500 for a tractor and its equipment
    • £6,600 for polytunnels and a seeding tunnel
    • £3,600 for packing and storage sheds
    • £2,850 to sink a borehole and install a water management system.

    Volunteers will be pleased to learn that we have also budgeted £600 for an upgraded rabbit proof fence.
