We’re part of a growing agenda

September 29, 2009

Our dogged efforts to grow and distribute our own vegetable crops continue to attract media interest.

Both Camel Community Supported Agriculture and our counterparts at the far end of the county, West Penwith CSA, are featured in the latest edition of Taste Cornwall magazine.

Writer Kevin Gray-Roberts waxes positively lyrical about reaping the rewards of harvesting earthy new potatoes, ripe tomatoes and crisp dewy lettuces.

Community supported agriculture is the perfect antidote to the anonymous consumerism that has overtaken food production and retail in the UK.

A certain section of the food-buying public has become so disenchanted with how the conventional food market operates they are taking direct, affirmative action to re-establish control of what they eat.

 The positive spin-offs of this are reduced food miles, packaging and waste, greater stability, security and sustainability for the farms, and community interaction across age and income groups.

Kevin’s article concludes that what we’re doing is superb medication for body and soul.  He urges others to follow our example and get stuck in. 

Not only will your food be fresher, your fitness, your outlook and your social life will all be infused with a new and vigorous growth.
