Canalside Community Food is a Community Supported Agriculture scheme http://www.canalsidecommunityfood.org.uk/ for all persons who live in and around Warwick District. The scheme is based on Leasowe Farm, a family run farm adjacent to the Grand Union Canal, just outside Radford Semele
Transition Shipston and Surrounding Communities has been invited to come to Canalside on Saturday 20th March to have a taste of the Community Supported Agriculture experience - help out, share in a great meal, and meet like-minded people. This is a great day to come along as Canalside will be having their Spring Equinox social, so you'll get to meet a lot of our members who'll be around for the day. The day will start at 10am for a work morning, followed by a Bring-and-Share lunch around a bonfire and a guided walk around the vegetable fields with the growers in the afternoon.
Canalside generally ask that visitors help out with a couple of hours work when they come. It’s the best way to get to know what a CSA is all about really, and a great opportunity to chat to others whilst your working. We would aim to leave from Shipston at 9:30 and return following the social lunch. Please bring a dish to share for lunch.
We will need to confirm numbers and aim to arrange for car sharing, so please email Jennifer Lanham: firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest by 15th March.
