We had a little free time on a chilly but sunny Saturday, so went down to Sneintons vegan market with a few friends. After we consumed some wonderful food which included sumptuous piri piri Vork pie‘s, mouth watering sausage wraps from No Balony UK and delectable sweet treats including a delightful vegan bounty made by Willow & Dove we stumbled upon a wonderful stall which we had not seen before, The Crop Club, a social enterprise based in Loughborough which had some very interesting items on display!
“The core of our vision is to reconnect people with growing food,
nature and communities.”
Rose Deakin, attending Loughborough service design Jam in 2013 conceived the idea of crop club and with the help of “The Studio” at Loughborough University managed to turn the concept into a sustainable social enterprise, whose ethos and vision is well aligned to our own ideas at Wildlife & Eco Gardens.
The Crop Club’s ethos promotes and encourages people to start growing food and to make such activities accessible to everyone alongside educating people about sustainability and environmental issues. To this end The Crop Club has some great items which they sell ranging from grow kits made from up-cycled coffee sacks to drip water feeders using old 2 litre plastic bottles! Take a closer look at whats on offer from The Crop Club and help support this creative social enterprise.
