  • Exciting times for Camel CSA’s grow-our-own veg project

    Posted on September 25th, 2010 charlotte No comments

    Our local food initiative in north Cornwall is entering a very exciting new development phase. So watch this space closely over the next few weeks!

    We’ve been busy tidying up the plot at St Kew Highway in anticipation of our big expansion on to the full two acres of land.

    All the ragwort’s been pulled up, dock leaves removed and ground levelled to make way for our first very own poly tunnel. 

    Much of the rest of the area has been ploughed and sown with green manure to help improve the soil fertility over the winter months.

    This Sunday our volunteer growing team will be sowing winter salad crops to go in the new poly tunnel as soon as it’s up.

    If you’d like to get involved, please meet outside our packing shed at 10am. We’ll be there until 12 – 12.30pm. Wear stout boots, bring gloves and don’t forget to include a waterproof (just in case).
