Welcome to Cultivate. We are a co-operative social enterprise owned by the community and dedicated to local food in and around Oxford. We believe that strengthening our local food system also empowers our communities, increases the resilience of our local economy, protects our natural environment, promotes health and wellbeing and enriches our culture.
This is what we do:
Growing | We grow fruit and vegetables without artificial pesticides and fertilisers on 10 acres of land just outside Oxford.
> Volunteer with us.
Selling | Cultivate’s VegVan mobile shop brings food from our market garden and other local farmers direct to the city.
> Eat local and sustainable with Cultivate.
Education | We are part of the movement for more sustainable food and agriculture.
> Find out about our education and community work.
Cultivate is people-powered! Join us and support the work of our co-operative by becoming a member, contact us for a chat, or just sign up to our email list to stay up to date.
