The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm, Rushmere Saint Andrew, IP5 1DW.
Calling all Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Schemes in the Eastern Region!
The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm invites any and all CSA Schemes in the Eastern Region to a gathering on the afternoon/evening of Saturday 22nd June 2013.
- A tour of The Oak Tree Low Carbon Farm on a working party day, see the farm in action!
- Share our experiences of running a CSA in what is an area of mostly a region of intensive agriculture
- Look at how to do some marketing together, perhaps interlinking our websites etc,
- Talk about the Eastern Climate and its effects on our growing – especially given that East Anglia looks set to be in the forefront of climate change…
We’ll provide a locally sourced lunch.
We’ve timed this event to coincide with our Summer Party that evening which you would be more than welcome to come along to after the CSA gathering, and there is camping space on the farm if you’d like to stay over.
I’m delighted to say that Rachel Harries, CSA expert from the Soil Association will join us for the day. If you are seriously considering setting up a CSA then you would also be very welcome to join us. If you are interested in joining a CSA, or you are just interested in finding out more, then please join our farm tour on Saturday 28th September 2013 at 2pm.
