More bumper crops from our community garden are sent to local foodbank

Our community garden has continued to be bountiful into the autumn months thanks to the hard work of our team of gardening volunteers. Over a hundred kilograms of organically grown fruit and veg have been contributed since the summer to Provide Devon who help local people in times of crisis.

If you shop at the Co-op and are a member, please support our community garden project by selecting us as your chosen community cause. This means Co-op donates a small percentage from what you spend in-store to our garden.
