Community share issue launch.

On Saturday March 17th Bosavern Community Farm launched its community share issue offer at Cape Cornwall School in St. Just. We are hoping to raise £125,000 towards securing the long term future of the farm as a community asset. Shares are available for the next two months only, costing £1 each, with the minimum purchase being 20 shares (£20) and the maximum 20,000 (£20,000). Please phone (01736) 788454 to order a prospectus, or visit to download a copy.

After showing several groups of people around the farm through the morning and afternoon, we moved on up to Cape Cornwall School for the launch event, where about 40 people came along to find out more, listen to people involved talk about the farm, and to buy the first shares.
