We are supplying a limited number of boxes/shares in 2023

We are currently adding people to our waiting list, and if you would like to join, please send your details by email. We will then be in touch if and when a place becomes available.

Be our pioneers! We’re looking for change makers and food lovers, who want to support ecologically-sound, local farming by having a box of veg once a week. Simple huh?
We guarantee to bring you the freshest, beyond-organic heritage variety vegetables we can grow, here on the outskirts of Redruth.

We are only planting enough for a small number of customers/members while we master this way of growing. Be one of the first people to support your local regenerative food network by becoming a member to receive your weekly veg box.

Please email grassrootsgarden@protonmail.com with your name, address, phone number and size of veg box/bag you would like, and I’ll be in touch with all the info you need to proceed.

As a member of the CSA* you will:

  • Pay for 4 week blocks of veg boxes in advance.
  • Support small-scale, Cornish farming with the smallest carbon footprint possible.
  • Enjoy chemical-free, nutritious salad, veg and greens, every week of the growing season.
  • Know that your food is grown in a regenerative way that helps the planet and does not pollute it.
  • Eat heirloom heritage varieties of veg that have been passed down for generations.

    (* CSA = Community Supported Agriculture)

Risk – Free

We have to be honest as new growers – we will have crop failures, even the experts do. Unlike some CSA schemes, we guarantee that you will receive a weekly veg box full of locally grown produce, even if we have issues, because we will buy in items from other farms. This means that you will receive your veg no matter what happens.

Buying veg in this way is gaining popularity around the world, because it connects people with their local growers, and the land that surrounds and feeds us.

If you have any queries, please contact us .

Many boxes will vary greatly, but you can look forward to £10 worth (or more) of:

  • Generous box of special mixed salad, including all sorts of varied leaves for a mix of flavours and textures.
  • Plenty of greens, which would be kale, chard and/or spinach or similar.
  • A bunch of roots, like carrots or beetroot, sometimes turnip.
  • Seasonal vegetables like sweetcorn, fennel, peas, broccoli, garlic, leeks, tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans and occasional quirky new items.

We want good food to be accessible to all, and would like to trial the “solidarity payment” model, offering a no-obligation and no-questions-asked sliding scale. £2 off if you’re of a lower income, and £2 added on a higher income.
Number of items is approximate. I am copying the model of other CSAs around the UK. I will do my best to fill the boxes with veg grown by me, but will supplement as and when necessary from elsewhere.

The growing season starts in February, with May/June being the time to expect first harvests. During the times of year when the garden is mostly dormant, I will source most veg from as close by as I can and buy these in bulk to share among the members. This is to keep the business afloat and to keep the veg coming, supporting a local resilient food system and cutting out the supermarkets.

Delivery by bike/trike costs just £1 which will be added to the payment total, and we only deliver within 2 miles. Preference is given to members that live on our existing delivery route.

Please send us an email if you would like to be updated on what happens here, with blog posts, workshops or anything else.
