E4H Food Garden
E4H garden is a community farm owned and democratically controlled by its members It is built on the E4H community model. It will create an economically stable, sustainably managed farm operation in which members are assured of the highest quality produce and access to what will essentially be their farm There are three human elements to this model,
1. A land owner who is prepared to look at models of sustainable food production that engage the local community.
2. A local farmer (trained by E4H) who is keen to produce food for the local community and respond directly to their needs.
3. A local community with a real appetite to engage with the food they eat.
The garden will grow vegetables produced by sustainable practices and run box schemes. Each box contains freshly plucked 10 vegetables which will be delivered at subscribers door step.
1 E4H garden unit = 1 acre land + 1 Farmer + 60 families
1 E4H box = 10 vegetables (delivered at your door step biweekly Eg Monday and Thursday ).
The structured designs of E4H gardens help people who visit the garden to feel in contact with nature thereby lowering their stress hormone levels.
Events are designed to improve the Social health (ability of people to form healthy and rewarding interpersonal relationship with others).
