- a Community Supported Agriculture scheme growing organic vegetables on the edge of the city at Postwick. We’ll be recruiting members who will pay an annual membership fee in return for a regular supply of seasonal, organic, local produce with a very low carbon footprint. Members will also be encouraged to get involved in supporting the project.
- another market garden on the playing fields of the Hewett School, linking students and local people into vegetable production and selling through local community outlets including the school kitchen and ideas like weekly market stalls at local primary schools.
- a flour mill milling local organic wheat, and supplying local artisan bakers who will then be able to bake a “Local Loaf” and
- brokering local staples such as oats and beans into wholefood shops in the city.
To start TN involvement we're having an open meeting on Monday 13th September at 7.30pm to discuss our next steps forward for the CSA. We'll certainly be discussing how the Board of the new not-for-profit organisation will be formed as that's one of the first things we need to do. But I imagine with such an exciting project the conversations will range far and wide: it promises to be a really interesting and inspiring evening. Please do come along - everyone is welcome. We're meeting upstairs at the United Reform Church, Princes St, Norwich NR3 1A. See you there!
