Dean Community Food CSA open day
Vegetable box scheme
Once the produce is ready, it is sold to local families through vegetable boxes and members are given food in exchange for their work on the farm.
The idea of CSAs is to reduce carbon emissions and reconnect people with local food and production.
The open day is on Saturday, May 22, from 2pm at Ragmans Lane Farm, Cat’s Hill, Ruardean. You’ll be able to see their vegetable garden and find out about local organic produce.
Activities include gardener’s question time, the chance to help design a wildlife area, composting forum, kids treasure hunt, giant pumpkin competition, grow a cress head, storytelling, refreshments and live music.
