Join us this Saturday for a gleaning session on the Cultivate farm; part of the line-up for this year’s Oxford Pumpkin Festival.

Calling in the Gleaners, 1859 by Breton, Jules (1827-1906); 90x176 cm; Musee d'Orsay, Paris, France; Giraudon; French, out of copyright

We’ll be rescuing lost, forgotten, misshapen, slug-munched, and outsized vegetables –  fennel, pointed cabbages and beetroot that are not quite beautiful enough to sell on the VegVan, but that are perfectly good to eat! Gleaning has a long and illustrious history; it has been happening on farms for aeons. Let’s bring it back!

All welcome. Get in touch with doireann@cultivateoxford.org if you’d like to come along.
