Volunteer for your Veg
The Food Life Community Supported Agriculture project have established a market garden and are looking for volunteers. The idea is that the grower and the community grow food together and the benefit is entirely for the community.
Mondays and Wednesdays are volunteer days between 9am and 2pm. You are welcome to stay as long as suits you. We will have regular jobs like weeding, seed sewing and harvesting but we also have tasting sessions and process the produce for stocking a year round larder. We grow an amazing array of plants and are keen to help you gain confidence in growing. There is a relaxation and toilet bothy with disabled access.
If you are interested and/or would like to come and see us, please let us have your details below and we will be in touch asap. The map shows where we are.

Our Group Movement
Founded in 2016, The Food Life has led numerous successful campaigns that have produced real change, both in Angus and further afield. Through events, permaculture education, food supply and policy inputs organized by our dedicated members, we work to demonstrate a new kind of food system that is fair to its participants and kinder to everyone, human and non-human and the environment, moving us all to rethink what is possible.
What We Do
The Food Life is dedicated to a few central causes which we believe are crucial in helping us achieve our goals. As a growing movement, we divide our time and efforts so that we can truly invest in each cause. Read on to learn more.
Food has the biggest impact on climate but it is also where we can dramatically reduce that impact by our choices.
Our Community Supported Agriculture project will bring community together around affordable, high quality fresh local organic produce.
Help Us Succeed
The Food Life encourages everyone to play their part in our Group Movement. The only way we succeed is when the change comes from within, and we want to empower you to take an active role. Learn more about the opportunities available to lend your support.
