Membership

For the 2016 season we will have 2 types of membership.

Casual Share

This is similar to the 2015 season arrangement but with one small difference. You can turn up on volunteer days when you like and will take a share of what we have surpluses of on that day. However, paid box scheme members must take precedence when it comes to what is available and it may be that with certain crops there is only enough to cover the box scheme members shares. For us to provide a wider range of crops, we will be limiting the quantities of crops grown to keep the operation as efficient as possible. Therefore, on some weeks the range of surplus crops may be limited. Obviously, varying number of volunteers each week will not encourage us to grow surpluses that would be destined for the compost heap.

Box Scheme Share

Starting in early summer 2015, you will pay monthly for a full box of produce either delivered or picked up from the field (delivery will incur some kind of small charge and we are currently looking to set up delivery hubs where produce can be picked up at a place that is local to you). There will probably be 2 or 3 sizes of box dependent on your needs ranging from around £6 to £12 per week. We cannot confirm prices until we have a better idea of the range of produce we will be growing for the 2015 season. You will be encouraged to visit site and take part in the growing whenever you can.

If you need any more information please do not hesitate to give us a call or send an email.

The membership fee for 2016 will be £30.00 per household.
