Canalside Community Food

Canalside Community Food is a small enterprise based near Leamington Spa. We grow organic fruit and veg which is collected each week by our subscribers. Through our education project we offer free visits of at least 2 hours to schools and groups of school-aged children and young people, to cover topics such as: what plants need to grow, where do things grow, what is the role of insects in growing vegetables. Visits take place between 1st April and 31st October and are led by a fully qualified teacher who works in local schools, and who is CEVAS accredited.
