Veg Bag Scheme
In summer 2011 the Transition Belsize Food-Buying Group set up a pilot project working with Bart the farmer at South Farm in Hertfordshire to get a weekly delivery of fresh, seasonal, organic vegetables for around 20 households. Scheme members had the chance to visit the farm during the growing season and help with planting, weeding and harvesting, forging a close connection to where their food comes from.
The hope is to develop the scheme in the future into a full community-supported agriculture project, with community members investing in a farm. The project blog, transitionbelsizevegbag.wordpress.com, serves as a forum for sharing information about upcoming deliveries, price comparisons and recipes.There are currently no deliveries, but for more information and to be included on the mailing list for any further developments in the scheme, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
