Veg Box

The Essex Allotment Veg Box – 28th May to 22 Oct

Collection Point – The Greenhouse Brentwood (Limited availability)

Locally grown food creates important economic opportunities, provides health benefits and helps to reduce environmental impact. It also helps bring the community together and gives people the opportunity to make a difference.

Additionally, many people feel local food tastes better and lasts longer. They also find peace of mind knowing exactly where their food came from and how it was grown. For others, supporting community economics and building relationships with local food producers is incredibly important, as is protecting the environment.

Whatever the reason, buying locally grown food is an important movement to support within your community.

By using agroecological methods and permaculture design principles, we are creating an agricultural landscape that functions as close to a natural ecosystem as possible. This allows us to remove the need for using synthetic chemicals and produce yields of fresh, natural food in a way that has little negative impact on the environment and welfare of animals. Growing in this way actually helps to have a positive impact on our environment by regenerating soils, sequestering carbon, encouraging wildlife habitat and being pretty amazing for the people associated with the scheme too. That’s us the growers and you the consumer.
