Would you like to support a local, organic, pollinator focused flower farming project?
Sign up for fortnightly bunches of freshly cut flowers delivered to a local pickup point from June-October and bring summer into your home while being part of OrganicLea’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Flower Scheme – helping to fund our ongoing work supporting wild pollinators.
Conventional cut flowers greet us in every supermarket, but over 85% are imported, mostly air-freighted from Kenya, and grown using copious amounts of chemical fertilisers and pesticides (including the highly toxic DDT) – meaning that even the smallest bunch comes with a huge environmental and carbon cost.
We’re growing a range of beautiful and locally grown cut flowers that are truly sustainable, organic and ethically grown, and as (or even more) attractive to the wild bees as they are on your kitchen table.
Note from our flower grower: “Last year we grew a mix of native and naturalised wild flowers to support a diversity of pollinating insects from hoverflies to mining bees. Flowers were chosen to provide both habitat, in the form of landing pads and sunning spots, and a diversity of shape and sizes to match the diversity of tongue lengths of our 270+ native bees. Native wild flowers such as yarrow, knapweed, viper’s bugloss, wild carrot and ox-eye daisies all proved long lasting as cut flowers and we had some lovely reviews from our supporters.”
Your 10 bunches of flowers in 2023 will be delivered to a local pick-up point on a Wednesday or Thursday, between the end of May and the beginning of October.
To receive a fortnightly share is £175 in total as a one-off charge (or 5 monthly payments of £35). Or you can opt for a weekly shares to receive a bunch every week.
One off bunches are available for £20.
For both shareholders and occasional customers, a local home delivery can be arranged for an additional £5 – email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements
We also can provide larger quantities of flowers, as well as bouquets and buttonholes, for events such as weddings. Enquire at email@example.com.
