Sole Share – London’s first sustainable fish box scheme

UNPACKAGED & SOLE SHARE present London’s first fish box scheme.

What’s a Community Supported Fishery?

A “Community Supported Fishery” (CSF) is an alternative model for selling fresh, locally-sourced seafood. CSFs aim to encourage good relationships between local fishermen, consumers and the sea by bringing top quality, locally caught seafood to their members.

How does it work?

Just like a veg box! You choose how much fish you want and how often you want it. You pay for your share at the beginning of the season and pick it up from Unpackaged either weekly or fortnightly. SoleShare’s first season will launch in September 2013 and will run for 10 weeks, every Thursday.

What’s in a box?

Every week you’ll be getting our fisherman’s catch of the day. This means you’ll be eating with the seasons and getting the freshest seafood around. It also means that each week’s catch will be a surprise and you may find yourself tasting local fish you’ve never had the opportunity to try before.

So, I’ve got my fish… now what?

At SoleShare, we want to do more than just provide you with fresh fish. As a member, we’ll offer you free workshops, to give you the knowledge, skills and confidence to prepare a whole range of seafood. To help you make the most of your catch, we’ll be supplying weekly recipes & hosting delicious social events.

Water Colour Launch – Precinct at Arthaus – Tuesday 17th Sept

Our building, Arthaus, used to be Flowers East, an art gallery.. before that it was a laundry and these two come together in the launch of Water Colour, an exhibition by Katherine May which opens tomorrow. Hosted by Precinct, the Arthaus exhibition space, Katherine’s installation has been designed to raise awareness of water consumption in the production & use of textiles and will see her dyeing fabric on site. The potential for the recycling of dye water will be illustrated by the dyed cloth becoming suspended in the atrium space, before a series of sewing and quilting workshops will make the cloth into quilts – it’s all interactive and great for kids and adults alike. Read more and sign up for the workshops. The launch party is on Tuesday 17th September as part of London Design Festival. We’re in charge of the prosecco & the afterparty – everyone is welcome, just rsvp.
