Help! We Need Somebody’s Help!

Not just anybody’s help, but yours!

That’s a Beatles lyric – don’t panic, nobody is in an emergency. We need to find some volunteers to help us do lots of cool stuff:

Would you, or anyone you know, like to work outside, connect with nature and community and learn how to grow food? Would you like to help us co-create a new project/CIC (Community-Interest-Company) that will help Redruth become more resilient and food-secure? Then please read on!

The first volunteer days are 10am – 4pm:

Thursday April 6th, Saturday April 8th,

Thursday April 13th and Saturday April 15th.

Grassroots garden CIC  at it’s essence is a start-up CSA – Community Supported Agriculture farm, and permaculture project on 2.5 acres, growing ‘beyond-organically’ on the edge of Redruth. 

Become a Grassroots Gardener:

We would love to work with local people, to co-create this space and do our bit for the planet and each other. 

Grassroots Garden CIC was mostly setup by me (Dan), with the help of some friends, and wonderful volunteers at Tresargie Farm, and we are entering into the 2nd season of running this CSA vegbox scheme, for a small number of local veg lovers who have become members. 

We want to expand so that we can feed more members (and volunteers), which in turn, allows us to support more struggling families via local food banks.

Last year we gave over £750 worth of veg to people in need, and we’d love to increase that amount this year!

We can offer lots of tea, plenty of soup and bread for lunch, and a friendly vibe while we work with our hands and the soil. We would love your help to kickstart the growing season! Help with planting new seedlings, clearing brambles, prepping this year’s beds, making new veg beds, fruit tree grafting, weeding, watering, tying tomatoes and many other things before the harvesting begins.  If you’re arty, perhaps you could help write some signs? Practical? Help us build something!

We have a newly installed polytunnel that is lovely and warm, which will soon be planted full of yummy tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and many other crops. Please help us fill it! 

If you are interested in knowing more or helping in any way whatsoever, please give Dan a call or send me a message on 07916444709, and check out our volunteer days list (above). If you can help on a different day, please let us know! We would love to hear from you.

We are here: We have space for some cars to park, and can use the “Wheal Peevor” carpark if needed. Head towards “Globe Vale Holiday Park”, and turn left down the “Wheal Peevor / Windy Ridge” track. We are just on the right, open on volunteer days (shown above).
