The Windmill Community Gardens Margate, veg bag scheme is supplied with produce grown at our Market Garden which is a one acre site located just behind Drapers Mill School in Margate. Our Market Garden is run by our two growers with the help of volunteers, and participants on work experience. We are a chemical free site and grow to Organic standards – although we are currently not registered as Organic.
We supply the scheme all year round with seasonal produce, there are times of the year (January – April/May) when our supply is lower due to the gap between growing seasons. At this point we include produce grown at other local organic and chemical free farms (these are located as close to us as possible).
We pack the veg bags using reuseable paper bags every Wednesday. On Thursday morning we deliver the bags to local collection points around Thanet (including one in Whitstable) Collection Points include:
The Vincent Cafe in Ramsgate
The Grain Grocer in Cliftonville
Oast Bakery in Cliftonville
Windmill Community Gardens in Margate
Private Address near the Sunken Gardens Westbrook
Private Address in Whitstable
Staples in St Peters
Queens Road Baptist Church in Broadstairs
We will confirm upon sign up the date of your first bag collection and the collection details.
We currently have two bag size options available: a smaller bag that has 5 items in smaller quantities that costs £8 per week, and our standard bag with 6 items for £9 per week. If you would like to know more about what goes into a typical bag, please get in touch.
