Transition Stratford is backing a new community growing initiative – Five Acre Community Farm, a community supported agriculture (CSA) scheme based at Garden Organic’s site at Ryton, near Coventry.
Five Acre Community Farm aims to produce local and seasonal organic vegetables – and to involve people in the growing. Based on five acres of land at the back of Ryton Gardens, Garden Organic’s headquarters, the CSA is a membership organisation, offering the opportunity to become engaged in growing as well as benefiting from the farm’s round-the-year vegetables!
Transition Stratford’s Facilitator, James Pavitt, said: “Transition Stratford is committed to the principle of local food. We run a Garden Share scheme to help people without gardens get the opportunity to grow their own and Harvest Share, a project to make sure loacl fruit is gathered and put to good uses. Five Acre Community Farm is a great initiative that’s not too far from us, so we are keen to support it!”
