We turned our grow-your-own dream into reality with the support and guidance of the Soil Association via Making Local Food Work. We have £60,000 funding from the Big Lottery’s Local Food programme and the East Cornwall Local Action Group (part of the South West Regional Development Agency).

These videos are about what we do and how we make local food work within our north Cornwall community. They were filmed at the Lottery and EU funding launch on our site behind St Kew Harvest Farm Shop at St Kew Highway.
David Wilcock of FoodiesSW recorded the first two videos on his smart phone. He also did own audio report of the event. Camel CSA member Shayne House videoed BBC Spotlight reporter John Danks as he was filming us.

Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s latest video celebrates our first harvest. It marks the red letter day when members received their first vegetable box shares.
This video features our volunteer picking and packing team at work, while two of our three expert growers reflect on what we’ve achieved so far.
Many thanks to Graham Smith of Ragged Trouser Productions.

We’ve started to get stuck in! Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s first vegetables are now in the ground. We’ve planted several rows of broad beans and Jerusalem artichokes, guided by our team of expert growers. Parsley, cabbage and calabrese seeds are all germinating in the poly tunnel.
We’re inviting volunteers to come along and get involved every Sunday morning from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on our site behind St Kew Harvest Farm Shop at St Kew Highway.
Remember to bring wellies, waterproofs, drinks and a snack. And don’t forget a pair of gardening gloves! Also bring any tools, ideally wheelbarrows, shovel, spades, forks and rakes. You’ll be made very welcome.
