Canalside Community Food organise camping events on the land they lease to run their Community Supported Agriculture initiative. They hold a camping weekend every September during their potato harvest, during which they encourage large numbers of their members to help bring in the harvest and to celebrate the growing season. The camping weekends involve a range of different land-based and craft activities and a tasty harvest supper, as well as music and stories around the campfire or film showings in the evenings. The harvest supper is usually attended by about forty people of all ages, representing around one fifth of their total membership.
