FoodSmiles is a Community Supported Agriculture project based in St Albans. We hope to make local food and food-growing more accessible, bring our community together and become a new source of local food for St Albans.
We launched on April 23rd 2014, on a small corner of an organic farm on the edge of nearby Harpenden, and harvested our first crops less than three months later in early July! We're growing a wide range of vegetables (with plans to expand and produce fruit and perhaps other foods in future) and we have four polytunnels to help us to grow all year round.
In 2017 we'll be expanding to a site at the CDA garden in Hixberry Lane, St Albans, and we also have plans to start an open-to-all community garden in St Albans town centre. Watch this space!
