Sign up for a produce share
What is my commitment?
We ask that you aim to commit to Canalside Community Food for a full growing season (i.e. one year) when taking a produce share subscription. This gives us financial stability, allowing us to make planting plans. It also means that you experience the full range of fruit and veg that we grow and the diversity of the different seasons. The subscription is on-going from the date it starts.
If you do need to leave Canalside, we ask for 2 months notice so that we can find someone else to take up your share of the harvest.
Members have the opportunity to come and help out with the growing work at our bi-weekly work mornings and big seasonal work tasks: this helps to keep our prices down and the work mornings allow you to meet other members and learn about where your food comes from and the process for growing it. We also welcome help with our publicity stalls, education project visits and members’ social events as valuable contributions to our work.
What should I do next?
To help you get a feel for whether the produce share will work for you, it is recommended that you take a one month trial produce share in the first instance to get an idea of what it is like to get seasonal, locally grown fruit and veg. The one month trial includes membership of Canalside for the period of the trial.
If you are already confident you’d like to subscribe for a produce share for at least one growing season (and know which size of share will suit your household best), or once you’ve had a one month trial, please contact Ali through the contact form to receive full details of how to become a subscribing produce share member!
