The Crossing Community Supported Agriculture scheme supplies harvest shares. Our weekly boxes are delivered Friday mornings to One The Square, Forest Row and contain a wide variety of vegetables and top fruits grown in our no-dig garden on 50 x 8m raised beds. We also keep sheep, pigs and chickens.
To achieve our aims we use an Agro-ecology design, implemented by Biologic Design. Inspired by the Regenerative Agriculture movement and Permaculture Principles, Community involvement, WWOOF uk, A Biochar Stove and mindfulness.
Want to know more about Regenerative Agriculture? Watch this amazing short film about an 4th generation industrial agricultural COWBOY Farmer, who turned his degenerated farm land into an oasis, teaming with life, in only 15 years. It’s called “One Hundred Thousand Beating Hearts” and sends a message of peace and plenty.
Nothing is truly owned – only taken care of for future generations. We celebrate seasonal markers in the wheel of the year. Our role is to steward the Land. Our aim is to leave it in a better state than we found it. Our goal is maximum fertility with maximum biodiversity. Biodiversity means adaptability, adaptability means resilience, resilience in our food systems is what we need to rise to the challenge of climate change. We are aiming for maximum food production by human scale effort, without disturbing the highly complicated and little understood layers of microbial and fungal relationships that live beyond our understanding beneath the surface of the earth.
That is where the magic lies.
Please support this smallholding to defend the right to farm for good food & biodiversity, not for profit. Thank you.
