Hey CropSharers,

Happy New Year to all of you – we hope you’ve all had a lovely festive period!

Apparently CropShare’s love of Kale means that we are soo last year (Kelp is said to be the superfood for 2015 – shame the sea is so far away) although our fermented food workshop makes us very hip indeed.

What more could a New Year Resolution list want than healthy vegetables and happy times? Pseudo science says we should all be sad on Monday 26th… but how can we be? WE’VE GOT CARROTS! So we are having the year’s first CropShare social to celebrate!

Plus, there’s more exciting events coming up, as well as a tasty cake recipe, all of which are guaranteed to keep that Blue Monday Blues at bay, so carry on reading:
