The Food Life Scotland

Work Party - 19th June 2022

A Community Supported Agriculture Scheme or CSA is a new way of producing and distributing the food that we eat. By connecting the consumer with those that produce our food, a better deal can be achieved for both. The CSA model offers access to land and the expertise of a grower but relies on community involvement for the scheme to function. By working together, we can increase our food security, develop a greater connection with nature and begin the regeneration of farmland and Nature.

Come and join our work party which is building the foundation of a CSA project. Help the core farm team grow, harvest and distribute food, facilitate educational projects and host community events. Longer term you could become a Community Grower, regularly helping in the field or become a Share Member and support the farm with your enthusiasm and through a weekly financial payment. Together we create delicious, nutritious food, and magical hands-on experiences and enrich the local wildlife and soil.

We want to get started with some land clearing at Wandershiell on Sunday 19th June from 10 o’clock. This is because over the next six months we want to build the soil fertility making it able to grow brilliant veg. We need to get a band of volunteers to help us. So would you like to help us that day and do you know anybody you can bring along? All you will need is gardening clothes. We can provide gloves and wellies.

Lifts from Brechin are available. Contact us to confirm a place by text on 07703257834 or email on thefoodlifescotland@gmail.com.
