A new 10 acre Market Garden is being created close to Cardiff to make more fresh food available to the local community.
Within five years the Market Garden will become a self financing community-owned business.
Work has already begun; their first harvest is expected in July.
The site will produce a wide range of organic vegetables, with an additional focus on higher value crops such as saladstuffs, herbs and some soft fruit.
In the longer term, some of this produce might be processed into soups, sauces, pickles and other longer-life products.
Polytunnels will extend the growing season and also to produce Asian and Caribbean vegetables that meet the needs of Cardiff’s diverse ethnic communities.
Linked to the growing, they will also offer training and care placements, with educational visits for schools and colleges, and fun days out for members and their families and community supporters.
They are offering individuals and organisations a chance to invest and become shareholders in this social enterprise mutual society for community benefit.
