Currently in the local area there is a welcome interest in the consumption and production of good healthy good. As a result of this growing desire to connect consumers and producers of organic food, there was a very successful meeting in Alpedrinha recently. Seeing that there were over 40 people present who wish to be part of the group – this was a huge signal that NOW is the time to develop this project.
We were delighted that Alexandre and Fransisco from the Ananda Marga organisation came and presented their ideas for a veg box scheme – with the added idea of a small market at the locations where boxes could be collected. There were many questions from the floor and very useful suggestions.
Castelo Novo 2.0, have been proposing the idea of an organic market in Castelo Novo – and there is support from the Camera of Fundao for this venture.
The next meeting of this Conscious Consumer Network will be here – at the Mount of Oaks on 26th March. Our Open Day themed on Organic Food will be the launch place for the networks next steps!
