    Posted on April 2nd, 2009 Pickle Design No comments

    There are lots of reasons why members of Cornwall’s first community-led agriculture project decided to get involved.  

    Camel Community Supported Agriculture’s latest video features different people explaining what inspired them to join in.

  • Join us to plant peas, broad beans and onions

    All this hard work is starting to make a difference!   

    A big thank you to all Camel Community Supported Agriculture members who turned out in the sunshine last Sunday to plant potatoes, onions and shallots.

    Please come and help out again this Sunday 29 March between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to get more seeds in the ground.

    Mark Norman, one of our team of expert growers, says:

    “There’s another bed of onions to plant together with  broad beans and  peas.  We need to prepare another bed for sowing carrots and parsnips.  Look out for broad beans and Jeruselem artichokes just peeking through.

    “We have more seeds to sow in the polytunnel. Seeds sown in the tunnel three weekends ago are doing well.  Some have been moved into the greenhouse for slightly cooler and less humid conditions with maximum light.”

    Remember to bring wellies and waterproofs (just in case) as well as drinks and snacks.  And don’t forget a pair of gardening gloves!  If possible, bring a selection of tools – wheelbarrows, rakes, spades, forks and trowels.

    We look forward to seeing you.  You’ll be sure to get a warm and friendly welcome.
