Grow It, Cook It, Eat It
a community food growing and cooking project – bringing communities together.
Our aim is to provide local communities with a space that they can use as their own and enjoy throughout the year. There is no membership, no cost and you don’t have to commit to anything, just come when you feel like it.
We welcome volunteers of all ages and experience at all of our sites, bringing communities together to grow their own fruit, vegetables and herbs. As well as giving you access to plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, gardening activities offer great low impact exercise – so growing your own is a good way of improving your physical health too.
Don’t know your cucumbers from your courgettes? Not a problem, all growing sites part of Grow It, Cook It, Eat It are led by an Expert Gardener who are able to provide you with all the advice and guidance needed to get you started. Throughout the year we will also offer small bite-sized skill building sessions to further build your skills and confidence.
Additionally, as the growing season progresses, we will work with you to develop a cooking element to the project to ensure you are able to use the lovely fruit and vegetables you have grown to create tasty, healthy, low-cost meals for the whole family.Last reviewed: 19/05/2021
