About this cause
We're a group who wants to encourage everyone to grow their own food by giving them the means and support to do this. We aim to have people of all ages to get outdoors, spend time with each other and learn how to grow their own food. We do this by supporting them both in materials (seeds, compost etc.) and the time and knowledge of our volunteers to show them simple processes in "growing their own".
How this cause brings people in the community together
Being outdoors is seen to have lots of health benefits, and gentle exercise in gardening can be undertaken by people of all ages. Our project will seek for people to grow with each other, share their stories and share their knowledge. We aim to reduce social isolation by having people come to our allotment and help us grow food, and for people to share seedlings and plants with their neighbours.
