Local food takes another step forward in Sheffield!

Posted on September 24, 2012 by


Hazelhurst Community Supported Agriculture Co-operative is now a  thriving organisation.

From its idyllic site in the Moss Valley, since  the end of July they have been supplying a weekly bag of fresh organic  vegetables to 35 households in Sheffield, and more to local shops and  restaurants.

 Maureen, a customer in Heeley, says: ‘The veg is really delicious. It’s  picked the same day so it’s really fresh. And it only comes from 3 miles  away!’

 On Wed 3rd October they will be celebrating their achievements so far  with an Annual General Meeting followed by a public meeting entitled

The Fun, Figures and Freedom of Community  Food Initiatives

The speaker will be Nick Weir.  Nick is a founder member of Stroud Community Agriculture which is now held up by the Soil Association as a  Beacon Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project. He is also a  founder member of Stroudco Food Hub (www.stroudco.org.uk), which is  providing a new economic model for community food distribution

The AGM is at the Quaker Meeting House and starts at 6.30pm. It is open  to non-members of the cooperative, though only members can vote. Nick’s  talk will start at 7.30pm
