Welcome to FlintShare

FlintShare is a community run social enterprise which aims to produce fresh, local sustainable food with and for its members. FlintShare is an ‘umbrella’ for two different ways of getting veg – the Community Garden (CG) Veg Account and the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) VegShare. Members can be part of either, both or neither schemes.
We currently grow on three sites in Flintshire, at Cilcain, Northop and Hawarden.

Bailey Hill Festival

We had a stall with fun feely veg boxes, kids games and two great veg displays. Some great conversations with interested and like-minded people and a new member signed up. FlintShare is spreading the word about local sustainable veg – a great day. Thanks to all who came to help and made it a fun day for all.

Community Gardening at Cilcain

These photographs might not look like much but they are proof of the huge amount of work that’s been ploughed into Cilcain’s community garden recently. The potato and parsnip beds have been dug over and manured, the sweetcorn area has been raked and re-covered ready for planting in a few months, and our lovely new pathway through the brassicas is beginning to take shape!
