Big Meadow Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

An innovative Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) scheme (Big Meadow CSA) combined with a residential programme (Surf N Turf) engaging rural communities across Gower and providing locally grown, plastic free veg boxes direct to 50 households.

Based in Llangennith, an isolated rural area on Gower with limited access to shops or choices to opt for local, package free food. The project will create a vibrant, sustainable food production scheme with regular volunteering opportunities and maximum community involvement. Education and harnessing the positive well-being and self-development that can come from working on the land will be a focus of our work with volunteers and groups.

Surf N Turf will bring groups from across Wales and the UK to experience the CSA project and engage in the activities that Gower can offer e.g. kayaking, climbing. Spending time outdoors and being active in nature can have a real and meaningful impact on people’s lives and delivery of these activities are in line with Welsh Government health and well-being strategies. Surf N Turf will not be a revenue raising project and will be funded through external funding secured either by the community groups we work with or by Big Meadow.
