Local Food


We are currently seeking funds to deliver a new innovative food growing, training and incubator project 'Cultivate'.  The proposal is to provide a programme of modular workshop style training, larger community learning events and volunteer work placements based at Ecoworks Market Garden

The ‘Market Garden Incubator’ project, will host and mentor a number of new small business start-ups to grow for Ecoworks Veg Boxes and other defined routes to market. We aim to invest in the regions professional food growing skills by employing sessional mentors and community trainers.

Subject to funding,  the programmes of work will begin in Autumn 2014.  Individuals should have a broad knowledge of crop production, experience of work in a community setting  and a practioner or advocate of organic and permaculture principles.
