The ‘Polycrub’ concept began as an NCDC community project in 2008. Our community was keen to reduce food miles and grow more fresh produce locally.
Polycrub has structural accreditation, our designs are subject to copyright and Polycrub® is trademarked.
There are currently two ranges of Polycrub: a 4 metre wide range and a smaller 3 metre wide range. A variety of length sizes are available.
“We really enjoyed growing in the community Polycrub, but we needed more space to expand the range of produce we could grow for Drumquin - it was a natural progression to buy a Polycrub of our own. We also wanted peace of mind that any structure we bought would be able to cope with the tremendous winds we can get here in Shetland”
Because Polycrubs are sold in kit form, they can be transported to customers far afield. Molly in rural Burgundy, France recently became the proud owner of a Polycrub.
“I think more health centres should think about having a Polycrub. It’s of great benefit to patients and staff, and is a genuine community resource.”
In four short years, Tom and Sue are well down the road to a more self-sufficient lifestyle.
