First polytunnel up and running at Treraven Farm

May 30, 2019

A  gargantuan effort’s gone into completing the first polytunnel at our relocation site at Treraven Farm, Wadebridge. Lead grower Mark Norman headed a large team of volunteers who got stuck in digging trenches, constructing the frame and securing the cover.

Secure equipment store installed at Treraven


May 28, 2019

It’s arrived! The shipping container we’re using as a secure equipment store at our relocation site at Treraven Farm is now in place. Over the next few weeks we’ll be planting green walls around the container to help it blend in with its natural surroundings.

Camel CSA takes first steps on new veg growing site at Treraven Farm


January 23, 2019

Camel CSA growers Mark and Bridget have begun marking out our first two vegetable growing beds above Wadebridge at Treraven Farm owned by the Gaia Trust.

We’re practising the No-Dig Method of organic cultivation championed by Charles Dowding. A thick layer of mulch will be applied in a few months’ time once the rye grass has died out underneath the black plastic. Then we’ll plant up the surface compost with our first winter crops – kale, purple sprouting broccoli and swede.

Over the next 18 months we’re gradually relocating our polytunnels, growing beds, equipment store, solar panels and packing shed to the new site at Treraven.

Wadebridge Town Council donates £500 towards Camel CSA site move


January 15, 2019

We’re extremely grateful to Wadebridge town councillors who have generously agreed to grant us £500 from their voluntary community and social enterprise budget.

We’ll be using the money to help fund the cost of erecting the first polytunnel on our new veg growing site above Wadebridge at Treraven Farm. Weather permitting, we’ll be relocating the tunnel from our St Kew Highway site very soon. Our other polytunnels, growing beds, equipment store, solar panels and packing shed will follow over the next 18 months.
