Community Food Growing & The Highland Good Food Conversation
There are so many benefits to community food growing and it's something that we can continue with - to some degree - during covid restrictions. It helps not only with improving local food availability and providing healthier food, but also simply allows folks to get together, to share knowledge or simply enjoy each other's company.
But how do we even start a new community food growing venture?
Emma Whitham is the founder of the highly successful MOO Food Community Food Project. Emma will share the story of her journey: how MOO (Muir of Ord) Food started, where it is now, it's successes and difficulties, and then more on to explaining more about newly started Highland Good Food Conversation.
This is the second in our series of events looking at how we can grow more food in Sutherland, The Highlands, and Scotland. We are working with and hope to work with the many other food organisation in the Highlands, Scotland and beyond to benefit from their expertise and share ideas and produce. Please get in touch if you'd like to be involved.
Community Supported Agriculture is a concept where the community invests in growing local, sustainable food, mostly but not always, in conjunction with farmers and crofters. The investment may be financial or through labour and there are a wide array of successful CSA models.
