Caerhys Organic Community Agriculture Polytunnel
Caerhys Organic Community Supported Agriculture (COCA) is a community supported agriculture scheme run on the principles of social enterprise. Member households pay £20 to £40 a month for a weekly share of organically grown local produce. COCA has been growing organic seasonal vegetables on 4 acres of land at Caerhys Organic Farm since early 2010. In order to ensure better early growing conditions for a larger variety of module-grown field crops, over winter production of late and early salads and greens and increased summer production of tender crops such as tomatoes, cucumber, beans and sweetcorn, COCA have secured SDF funding towrads the purchase of a second polytunnel. More than one polytunnel is required for crop rotation, organic disease control and to achieve the extended season and quantities of production aimed for in uncertain climatic conditions. This second polytunnel is vital to maintain and improve the quality, quantity and variety of vegetables, which will help to expand membership to a target of 80 households.
