Cultivate are well on their way to their goal of making great local food fairly-priced, convenient and accessible to more people in and around Oxford. They have reached 97% of their updated Â£80,000 target and with their share offer closing on April 16 are calling on anyone who has been waiting to help them get all the way!
Since the launch in January, 210 investor members have already helped break through the initial investment target a month early, but the groupâ€™s founders have also been busy out in the fields.
Co-founder Dan Betterton said "We're delighted by the response to Cultivate from people in Oxfordshire - it has been a wonderful experience to watch support and joint action build around a shared interest in local food. We're already using the investment to get the project off the ground - the first crops are in!"
To celebrate the incredible success of their share offer, Cultivate challenged local restaurant Oxfork to come up with a feast of locally-sourced produce at the trickiest time of the year, during the Hungry Gap when winter veg is tailing off but before the new season has really got under way. Not just local, but vegetarian, convivial, beautiful and affordable. The group members updated on Cultivateâ€™s progress both in the bank account and in the fields, Oxfork talked the room through their meal and every single plate was licked clean.
