Community is based on a balance of rights and responsibilities. Globalisation has been good at enforcing perceived 'rights' but has neglected responsibilities. One result has been that as consumers and communities we have been so distanced from the products that we consume we are unable to take responsibility for our choices.
We have strong charitable links to the Oxford homeless centre and encourage our customers to make a donation while placing their order. This approach relies on local relationships, with our customers, our suppliers, our volunteers and the local community in general.
We hope to contribute to the development of an alternative economy, where nature is valued, produce is reared with respect and responsibility is taken for our energy use, our waste and our buildings. We welcome community involvement and we are open to suggestions for events and activities.
It is only by taking responsibility together than we can hope to make a positive change.
