  • Camel CSA sows the first seeds of success

    Posted on March 12th, 2009 Pickle Design No comments

    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.

    Find out more from Alex at alex@olivetreeevents.co.uk or Antonina at St Kew Harvest on 01208 841818.

  • Camel CSA needs volunteers to get stuck in

    Now it’s your opportunity to get stuck in!

    Camel Community Supported Agriculture is planning an exciting Open Day for all our members at the beginning of June but right now we need lots of help to get the site ready for planting.

    We would love for you and your family to come and help out and get stuck in. Our expert growers will be at the site behind St Kew Harvest Farm Shop every Sunday from 8 March onwards between 10am and 1pm preparing the ground, setting up the vegetable beds and getting those first plants in the ground.

    Why not come and join us this Sunday? It will give you an opportunity to get involved from the start, learn what’s involved with preparing a vegetable plot, what’s on the planting schedule and also work up a good appetite for Sunday lunch.

    Please bring wellies, macs, drinks and a snack.  Also bring any tools, ideally wheelbarrows, shovel, spades, forks and rakes.

    We look forward to seeing you there!

    If you would like more information or have any questions email Alex at alex@olivetreeevents.co.uk or call Antonina at St Kew Harvest on 01208841818.
