Why fund Harvest Workers’ Co-op?

We are doing a new reason each day for the remainder of our campaign. This post will be updated each day so stay tuned for more! So far we have:

  1. So that our community can access affordable food – that is food that is produced sustainabilty so it is good to eat and good for the earth. This means that it will not have the inflated prices of “organic” food in the supermarket. We price check our produce so that it is an accessible price for everyone in the community.

  3. To reconnect people with the land and where their food comes from! We’ll run farm-based activities for children and adults; because when kids get to dig a few spuds out of the ground, they are in total awe at the wonder and never will forget where potatoes come from! is the best way to learn…
  4. We will provide jobs for people in our community. Our seven members all live locally in Devon, and all will be employed by the co-op. We hope in the future to be employing more people in the area who want to be part of the Okehampton food revolution!
  5. We will provide a selling platform for smallscale, local growers like Down Farm Winkleigh, and Hilltown Organics
  6. Where else can you buy a salad, loose or bagged, with over 50 different varieties of leaf, herbs & flowers?
  7. We’ll be making seasonal smoothies with Okehampton Priory school today (Friday 23/6) in Red Lion Yard, Okehampton, in partnership with our friends at Love Local Food! What fun! Let’s get future generations pondering the origins and seasonality of our food, not just for today, but at every educational event we run as the Harvest Workers’ Co-op.

  1. Happy to support the Harvest Workers Co-op. It is great to have access to locally produced fresh food at reasonable prices as a viable alternative to the supermarket solution. We like the opportunity to reduce food miles as it helps us lower our carbon footprint. Martin and Sara have been an inspiration to all who like to grow their own vegetables and fruit and have always been really helpful. The salads are great!!
