We believe that changing the way we produce and distribute food is fundamental to solving the world’s most pressing social and ecological problems.
Regather is a co-operative of local people working to improve food and build community in Sheffield. We run an Organic farm, veg box scheme, and many other community projects.
In our organisation, we centre our work around care for our environment and the people in our community. Our priorities are:
More sustainably sourced food
More locally based economics
More democratically controlled systems
Our veg box enables us to join forces with other local growers and independent producers across the region to provide the best quality products and make it easy to shop local.
Meanwhile, we’ve been growing our own locally sourced food for Sheffield via our Organically certified farm. We strive to work with the land around us to produce food in a way that provides habitat for wildlife and restores biodiversity while employing local community members at a real living wage.
We pay our suppliers at least 50% of the retail value for any products we buy in, and when dealing with wholesalers, we check to make sure they pay fair prices to their growers.
Local food supports local economies. Food grown in the local community supports local jobs and encourages variety in our diets. It also requires less transportation, so it's fresher and has a smaller environmental footprint.
