About Canalside CSA

Canalside Community Food is very much like an organic, vegetable box scheme – members pay a subscription for a weekly assortment of those items in season.  Canalside offers the chance to be part of a community that works to support a local farm whilst enjoying a regular share in the harvest.  Members are able to visit the farm and help with the growing, harvesting and weeding(!). As well as these opportunities to help work on the farm with the growing of veg, there are also social gatherings throughout the year.

Canalside Community Food started full scale vegetable production in Spring 2007 and we now produce weekly shares of seasonal veg for over 110 households. All the vegetables in the shares are grown on the project site on Leasowe Farm, where we cultivate 7 acres, including seven large polytunnels for tender crops, using organic methods. We are certified organic by the Soil Association.

Succeed with seed with selection perfection

Ben Raskin: One of the keys to saving your own seed is the 'selection', or identifying the best of your plants to keep the seed from. If you are aiming to 'maintain' a variety, in other words to keep it as close as possible to the original genetics of that variety, then there will be specific traits you will need to keep (colour, height, pest or disease resistance for instance). Most of just want to ensure the selection performs well in our garden or farm.
