Sustainable Skerries’ Community Harvest Group held its second public meeting on Thursday 20th January in the Sailing Club. The Community Harvest Group (CHG) is a partnership between a local organic farmer and a couple of dozen families from Skerries. The idea is that the participating families get a weekly veg box of organic, seasonal and local food. No Food Miles, just healthy, delicious, sustainable fruit and veg with a few organic eggs thrown in.
The meeting was well attended with over 20 families signing up for CHG membership. We still have a couple of places available. We were also delighted to have a representative from the Irish Organic Farmers and Growers Association, (IOFGA). She was impressed with the partnership between our organic farmer and the CHG member families.
We are all looking forward to our first veg box in April.
