Storm Isha causes additional damage
January 28, 2024
Sadly, another polytunnel cover has been ripped off by strong winds. Storm Isha tore into Polytunnel 4 in the same way Storm Henk harmed Polytunnel 1 just three weeks ago.
It’s by far the worst storm damage Camel CSA has suffered since setting up 15 years ago. We’re all used to bad weather in north Cornwall, but there’s no denying that climate change is making these severe weather events more frequent.
We don’t give up easily! Two replacement polytunnel covers are on the way and will be installed once the winds die down and the sunshine gets warmer.
Camel CSA is fortunate to have than 70 member households who can help share both the risks and rewards that come with vegetable growing. We rely on people to step up during challenging times like these to provide practical support for our paid growers and volunteer core management team.
