The Goodery Garden
In the coming months, we will be starting our very own Market Garden. When we set out on our mission of supporting the next generation of organic growers we soon came to realise that access to capital and land was a major blocker for most new growers. That’s why we took the step of committing to cultivate some unused land on the lovely Organic Ash Farm in Bintree. We’re investing in equipment and expertise to bring you fresher, tastier, more interesting produce and to truly commit to our purpose of backing the next generation of organic growers. It’s with that news that we’d like to introduce you to our Head Grower: Jen. Trained by the agroecological experts Hannah and Tom over at Eve’s Hill Veg Co, Jen brings not only green fingers but also her infectious smile. We’re very excited to have her on the team.
Here is Mary (from Ash Farms), and our head grower Jen.
Why are we doing this?
We want to be able to bring you all tastier, fresher and local fruit and veg. Bringing you the best products that we can has always been our goal here at Goodery, as we can give you the fruit & veg you deserve whilst treating the earth with the respect it deserves. Starting our own market garden allows us to cut our carbon footprint down even more as we won't need company's to bring us our fruit and veg, and we can bring it straight from our farm to your table.
How can I get involved?
Starting a market garden also opens a lot of job opportunities for a variety of different people, the working hours are 9am-1pm every Wednesday. Working on the farm means working alongside Jen, Jack and Megan for the day, you'll be doing a variety of things such as, clearing the land, planting crops and much more.
