A Leamington organic food scheme is inviting the public to visit its site as part of the annual and national Open Farm Sunday event next month.
Visitors to Canalside Community Food in Radford Semele on Sunday June 11 will have the opportunity to look around the vegetable-growing fields and polytunnels.
Canalside grows all the produce provided in weekly boxes, which come in three sizes – large, medium and small.
Around 170 households in and around Leamington subscribe to the scheme.
Subscribes receive a share of the seasonal vegetable harvest throughout the year with fruit alongside it when in season.
Canalside’s administrator Ali Jeffery said: “People often tell us they drive past our gate every day and have always wondered what we do, so we think that opening the gates and showing people round is a great way for people to find out about how Canalside works and how they can get involved.
"We also want to tell people about the model of farming that we use – Community Supported Agriculture.
"A tour of our farm will give people an insight into how it operates and what's special about it.”
Tours will take place at 12 noon and 2pm.
Visitors are also invited to bring a picnic to enjoy in the family-friendly social area at the site – or in the pole-barn if the weather is wet, or very hot.
Younger visitors will enjoy playing in the natural, willow-woven tunnels and on the chunky wooden play equipment in the play area.
