Welcome to Banc Organics!

Banc Organics is a not-for-profit community supported food scheme which grows Organic* vegetables and fruit in Bancffosfelen and distributes them in the Gwendraeth valleys. Our members get a weekly Organic fruit and veg bag delivered to a pick up point near their home. Much of our work is done by volunteers, and we encourage our members to get involved in growing their food, as well as getting to know each other.

We are a small group of people who want to provide fresh, Organic, local food for ourselves, our families and our communities.We are now in our seventh year of producing vegetables and fruit from our two growing sites in Bancffosfelen. Most of the hard work so far has been done by dedicated volunteers, though we hope to eventually pay our main workers for more of their time.

The idea is that our members tell us what they’d like us to grow and we grow it for them. Our members commit to buying the produce in a weekly vegetable bag and we commit to supplying a great value bag of fresh Organic vegetables every week all year round.

In This Week's Bag

12th July 2018

We harvested our remaining onions this week - now all are drying super fast in the superheated poly-tunnels. It was a bit like playing spot the onion though - as the hot weather in spring, followed by a few cold nights, and hot dry weather now has caused most of them to bolt. That means flowering a year too early! giving us rows and rows of beautiful flower heads, tall and stately in the sun!
Who said veg growing was easy!

We feel very proud of all the good stuff we are managing to grow through this challenging season!
Tomatoes are now abundant; as are cucumbers; French and runner beans, courgettes, basil, parsley and kale. We have plenty of new season beetroot, golden beets and summer leeks.
We've had a season of lettuce shortage owing to problems raising the plants, but are looking forward to having some for mixed salad leaves this week, and possibly our own lettuce again next week.

Bags this week will contain a selection from potatoes, onions, carrots, beetroot, tomatoes, runner beans, French beans, tomatoes, cucumber, broccoli, kale and leeks, and possibly peppers, aubergine, mixed salad, courgettes, mange tout, broad beans or cabbage.

Please remember to return our bags and punnets for re-use, and place orders by 8pm on Friday evening.

Here are some opportunities to get more involved with Banc:

Every Tuesday morning we meet to garden and work (Suzy in the office; Sue and Martin in the garden). Midway through the morning we stop for 11ses, including from time to time treats brought in by volunteers.

Every second Tuesday evening (between 8pm and 10pm normally) the core group meets. We would love some reps from our volunteers and members to join, so if you're interested please let me know.


We have a new manager for the facebook page.
