CSA UK – Building and growing the movement

23 November 2012 09:30 - 23 November 2012 15:30

Occombe Farm, nr Paignton, Devon

Following the success of the recent similar networking and consultation event for CSAs at the Community Farm in Bristol we are offering another opportunity to build on the discussion and actions from this to develop the CSA movement. There will be the chance to visit and learn from Occombe Farm’s CSA and to network with other like-minded CSA growers and practitioners.

We are pleased to be able to offer this as a free event, courtesy of Occombe Farm. Places are limited so please book asap at csauk.eventbrite.co.uk

There will be donations for refreshments, please bring biscuits and cakes to share. Lunch can be purchased from Occombe Farm shop/café or bring your own.

For those staying in the area, School Farm Organic No-Dig Market Garden will be offering a free tour the following morning from 10am to 11am. The Market Garden is in Dartington, fifteen minutes drive from Occombe Farm. Bookings for this can be made on the day of the conference.

For any queries please contact Laura Creen, head grower at Occombe Farm on: 01803 696 241.

Succeed with seed with selection perfection

Ben Raskin: One of the keys to saving your own seed is the 'selection', or identifying the best of your plants to keep the seed from. If you are aiming to 'maintain' a variety, in other words to keep it as close as possible to the original genetics of that variety, then there will be specific traits you will need to keep (colour, height, pest or disease resistance for instance). Most of just want to ensure the selection performs well in our garden or farm.
