Highbridge Community Farm
We have evolved from the Transition Movement and retain their founding principles – a community-led response to the pressures of fossil fuel depletion and climate change, supporting local economies and moving towards a more viable and sustainable future. Now a mutual benefit co-operative society with 115 stakeholders (a stakeholder can be an individual, couple or family) in our own right, we work together to produce food for ourselves with minimum use of fossil fuels and chemicals. We support growing techniques that maintain the natural balance of the soil, preserve wildlife and their habitats, and encourage biodiversity. We have a polytunnel team managing three tunnels, ten teams of ten stakeholders growing vegetables, and one team of ten looking after 250 fruit trees and soft fruit cages.
