About the speaker
Doug Kemp’s journey to organic vegetable production started with community gardening in East London, moving on to long term volunteering on smallholdings, and later commercial veg box ventures, before joining the Regather Veg box team in 2016. A passion for the outdoors, practical work, delicious local organic veg and the implementation of robust working systems has helped direct him towards setting up the Regather Farm. Doug has completed the Soil Associations Future Growers course and attended market gardening courses held by LandBase. Prior to joining Regather Doug has experience of community development work across third sector environmental organisations working on project delivery, managing volunteers and delivering training.
Since early 2018 Regather have been busy developing a 15-acre site on the edge of Sheffield in the beautiful Moss Valley. We’re establishing a market garden, orchard, polytunnels, beehives and an agroforestry project.
Wanting to be part of a sustainable food system, Regather is helping transform local food by making more local produce available to the people of Sheffield and our new farm is at the heart of that.
