The Fold COMMUNITY Farm
Lucy who runs the Care Farm at The Fold, Bransford is applying for a grant to develop it into a community farm in the form of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) project, a partnership between community members and the Fold Farm in which the rewards, responsibilities and risks of farming are shared.
As a member you would receive a weekly share of the harvest and have the opportunity to get involved. To help gauge demand please complete this simple questionnaire: http://goo.gl/forms/A7I86ninPr
For more information on CSA’s see: www.communitysupportedagriculture.org.uk

The main festival is October 2nd till 4th but there are pre-h.Energy events. See herefordshirenewleaf.org.uk/page/henergy for all the details
For the last few years, volunteers have been picking fruit from tree owners with too much to use, and distributing the fruit to those who can use it, reducing food waste and food miles.
In late summer and autumn, fruit tree owners often have more fruit than they have time to pick, or the capacity to eat. Abundance Malvern was set up a few of years ago to stop this fruit from going to waste. Tree owners donate their fruit, volunteers pick it, and then abundance distribute it to other local people.
This year abundance are looking for more tree owners and volunteers who’d like to stop this fruit from going to waste. If you have a tree with excess fruit or a few hours to spare, please contact Linda Hirschhorn firstname.lastname@example.org
Dates for volunteers picking this year are 30th August, 6th September, 27th September, 4th October and 11th October, starting at 10am.
