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.
