Growing projects

Growing food ourselves in every-day spaces enriches our relationship with the food we eat and the outdoors.

Understanding how food arrives on our plate and getting our hands dirty can be very therapeutic.

Our volunteers grow vegetables in under-used city spaces from Church yards to front yards. Sharing growing tips and celebrating home-grown food is a great way to bring neighbours together.

If you want to help, but don't want too much commitment, contact us to have a chat about how you can start (details at the bottom of the page).

If you want a more active role, have a look at the Growing Supervisor Role.




What can I do?

Join a team of volunteers at communal gardens to do some digging, watering, sowing seeds, cutting back shrubs and harvesting the fruit and vegetables.

This year we started a new initiative, helping groups of neighbours grow vegetables in their front yards. We provide a raised-bed (made from waste timber in our workshop). The neighbours support each other in learning how to grow.
