Riverside Market Garden is a community-owned business. Whilst they receive some funding from grants, they rely on investment from members of the community. They need more capital investment now in order to work towards being self-sustaining in the future.
Whether you’re an individual, household, organisation or corporate sponsor – you can buy a share in this exciting initiative, or donate towards specific fundraising objectives. It would make the perfect Christmas present for someone who is invested in their community or wants to be part of a thriving local business. Cardiff’s vibrant food scene is bigger than ever, so what better time to be involved?
Why buy shares or donate?
To date, over 150 community shareholders have invested nearly £12,000 between them. By investing in the market garden you are contributing to many positive social and community benefits, for example:
Community – being involved in your local food supply
Economy – keeping money in the local economy
Environment – managing land to organic principles
Shares can be purchased for £50 each. Under their democratic structure however, each shareholder has one equal vote, regardless of the value of their investment. Shareholders also receive a monthly newsletter, are invited to Open Days and other events at the market garden, can contribute their views at the AGM, are welcome to visit and volunteer, and benefit from a discount on their tasty and seasonal veg boxes.
