Opportunity to Tender

Feasibility Study into Community Food Growing and Local Food Enterprise


We are looking for a contractor to carry out a comprehensive feasibility study into community food growing on Alston Moor.

We want to explore opportunities for developing community food growing spaces and also local food enterprise in the area, as part of our Alston Moor Greenprint programme, and we need someone with experience and expertise to investigate some of the options for us.

We’re particularly keen to hear from contractors with specialist knowledge of growing at high altitude and the installation of renewable energy sources to heat covered growing spaces.

We’d expect the feasibility study to run between January and April. Please do consider that this study will be conducted during the winter months on Alston Moor.



The deadline for submissions is 3pm on Tuesday 11 December 2018.

Please submit your response by email to office@cafs.org.uk or by hand to CAfS, Eden Rural Foyer, Old London Road, Penrith, Cumbria, CA11 8ET.
