Camel Community Supported Agriculture shortlisted for Cornwall Sustainability Awards

The Cornwall Sustainability Awards (CSA) aims to encourage, reward and gain recognition for the work businesses are doing to improve their own sustainability and that of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly as a whole.

As a result of the support received through Cornwall New Energy, Camel Community Supported Agriculture has been shortlisted for this year's Cornwall Sustainability Awards. One of the first of its kind in the UK and a pioneer of not-for-profit volunteer led veggie box schemes in Cornwall, it has been recognised as an exemplar of local food production with high sustainable, environmental and socially responsible principles and for creating a positive impact on their community. Their operation near Wadebridge is completely off-grid (energy positive), with all of the energy required for growing and picking/ packing is supplied by an on-site solar power system.

“We are always looking at ways in which to reduce our impact on the environment and to provide a sustainable operation. To support this we have been working with the Cornwall New Energy project to identify areas in which we can improve.“

Diana Barry, Chair, Camel CSA
