We aim to bring together all of our local growers in one place, working with them to promote local produce and encourage people to enjoy good, nutritious food. All organisations mentioned here have a positive social impact and they all contribute towards the wellbeing of communities.
We have gathered them together in one place to make it easier for people to see where we are all based. We are all learning together – we are not experts! – but we want to encourage and enthuse people to be growing food at home and appreciate what good, fresh food really tastes like and how it can be used to create tasty and nutritious meals. We have all it takes to get started and be sustainable, providing an alternative to the traditional food chain. Locally grown food has endless benefits, including ecological, economical, educational and general well-being.

We run a range of educational courses, from business and employment skills to tending the community allotment and planting trees in the neighbourhood. Our aim is to make provision for improving social, language and digital skills to those most in need of such support. These areas are key to personal development and increasing self confidence and self worth.
