Public Meeting Announced

Yorkley Court Community Supported Agriculture is set to take its initial form, in a public meeting held at the Bailey Inn, Yorkley (see below for address) on Sunday July 1st at 7pm.

The aim of this meeting is to discuss how we as a community can come together and address issues such as sustainability, food sovereignty, re-localisation and biodiversity through food. We hope to create a project that helps us reconnect with the local environment and provides a fun and educational place to come together and celebrate.Community Supported Agriculture is an opportunity to collectively use the land to provide our basic needs. These can include fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, flowers, mushrooms, craft materials, fibres, wool, meat, poultry, eggs, milk products, firewood, chutneys and preserves, teas, herbs, dyes, paints, building materials… your imagination is the limit.

We are looking for all kinds of enthusiasm and involvement in the project; people to help with gardening and growing, share in the harvest, support us financially, share some skills, visit on our open days, celebrate with us or learn with us. Even if you don’t want to be involved in any way, but do hope this project is successful, we’d love to meet you. If you can’t make the meeting but still want to be involved check out the Get Involved page for ways you can help out. Or just Contact Us to say hi.

The Bailey Inn is in Yorkely in the Forest of Dean:
