eat what we grow
Colum Pawson has set up, and runs, a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) scheme in the walled garden and orchard at Old-Lands. The scheme’s members pay a monthly subscription and in return receive a weekly share of the produce from the garden. This provides the members a good selection of seasonal vegetables and fruit throughout the year. A member’s share will fluctuate with the seasons and with the variations in weather. Thus both member and grower share the risks and benefits of a growing season and the project has a reliable fixed income.
There are regular social events during the year for those who like more involvement, and monthly volunteer days where members can meet each other, and learn a little more about the garden and growing.
The garden is run organically, without the use of pesticides or fertilisers, and as a wildlife-friendly garden, will support the biodiversity of the Old-Lands estate.
