Food Communities Ltd
Communities working together to enjoy the freshest, tastiest, healthiest, most eco-friendly, non-packaged, truly local food
Food Communities Ltd is a limited by guarantee social enterprise company (Company number: SC575014) based in Peebles, Scottish Borders.
There is a network of Food Community Facebook groups across the Scottish Borders with approximately two thousand members growing, foraging, swapping and sharing food, seeds, plants, tools, materials, advice, skills and time.
We have taken on various areas of private land and converted them into productive growing spaces for free using waste materials, donated or shared tools, and zero chemicals. We have not required any public funding or grants and use these gardens to grow lots of organic fruit, veg and herbs. The landowners benefit from free upkeep of their land and free produce.
Food Communities Ltd aims to be self-sustaining with a clear, long term plan to make money, low running costs, and all profits reinvested back into growing more and more truly local food. We sell produce, plants, trees and compost and encourage further income from advertising, sponsorship and donations.
Food Communities are led by the community for the community. We want as many people as possible to get involved and there are numerous ways to participate (e.g. join the Facebook groups, volunteers in our gardens, read/write for our blog). You can be as active as you wish. All input will be greatly appreciated.
