Transition St Albans meeting to discuss new project to support sourcing locally grown vegetables
A meeting will be held later this month to discuss the possibility of a new community project in St Albans.
A group from Transition St Albans has come together with a representative from the council and The Plunkett foundation to set up a food project in the area.
The meeting will be held at 1.30pm on Saturday, September 28 in Dagnall Street Baptist Church.
The community project will be known as Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and its aim is to set up partnerships between people interested in sourcing locally grown, organic and seasonal vegetables with local farmers.
The meeting will feature a variety of speakers including local farmers, a restaurant owner, an ex Earthworks manager and someone who has successfully set up a CSA in Farnham. A short film will also be shown to display how a CSA works for others.
The aim of the meeting is to set up a steering group to get the project off and running. It will require people with practical skills, financial skills and promotional skills and simply people who want to buy into a project to source local food.
