Melton Community Supported Agriculture - Farm Open Day

A number of the Good Seeds headed to the Melton CSA for the farm open day on Sunday the 16th of October.

Happy chooks
Busy bees
There was plenty of fun including, farm tours, a
delicious lunch and most importantly the chance to talk about Community Supported Agriculture.

Community Supported Agriculture establishes a direct link between the farmers and the eaters. Membership of the farm includes discounted foods, and the chance to be involved in the life of the farm.

There are almonds, olives, chooks and vegetables, with plans for much more, so plenty of pressing, picking and planting to get involved in through the seasons.

The day was intended to not only show people what is out there, but to invite more people to be involved, be it hands on market gardening, brewing cider, or running special interest social groups.

Getting involved would be a great way for everyone to build their skills base and supplement the produce from a community garden.
