The first Northern England network gathering on 30 March 2019 was organised by Suzy Russell from CSA Network UK. Participants had a wonderful day including great talks on record keeping from Neil Hickson (Burscough Community Farm), agroforestry from Mick Marston (Gibside Community Farm CIC), and funding from Naomi (Power to Change).
The event was hosted by Jo and Len at Swillington Organic Farm in Leeds and there was a sunny farm tour. There were several existing CSA Network members in attendance as well as others interested in setting up a new CSA in the region.
Everyone agreed that the networking and learning from coming together was valuable and we’re planning the next Northern England event already!
