Community Supported Agriculture Important Meeting to Show Support, June 2

Great news! We now have a site to grow organic vegetables at Postwick on the edge of the city for our CSA scheme. A key factor in creating a resilient food supply for Norwich is to increase the amount of fresh fruit and veg grown in and around the city, as well as learning to grow them organically without oil-based fertilisers. The Food Group aims to kickstart the process by inviting members of TN (and friends) to "own" the production, employ a grower and commit to paying for a weekly share of the produce. Working with East Anglia Food link, the Food Group aims to start next spring and is finalising a funding bid to the Lottery to pay for set-up costs, as well as the City Farm and Flour Mill and Bread project. A recent on-line survey revealed a very strong interest in these schemes.

Now we need to convince the Lottery that we will really be able to sign up members, so we need as many people as possible to come to a meeting on June 2nd at 7.30pm at the Baptist Church on St. Mary's Plain. So please come along and demonstrate your support. For more info email tully@transitionnorwich.org or info@transitionnorwich.org
