Blackcurrent is based in a Victorian town house near the middle of Northampton. Some people work full time outside of the community; others work part time, and everyone volunteers as much time as they choose to the running of the Co-operative.

All communal food is vegan and organic, and the house is a meat/fish/poultry free zone. We don’t keep pets or livestock.

We (generally) welcome visitors who would like to work with us, Ring or email before coming for our visitor information sheet.

Blackcurrent is currently looking for new members

We need new people with energy and enthusiasm (and ideally with some relevant skills or experience)- to join in the life of our community, to help in the eco-renovation of our lovely old building, to help in the running of the resource centre, …and to help keep the mortgage paid! If you’re happy to eat vegan communal food, would like to share food and housework, want to help create a forest garden and live in a house free of toxic chemicals, then give us a ring or e-mail giving some information about yourself.
