2022 - Growing Grants funding now open


Growing Grants will support projects that involve:

  • growing food as a community effort
  • educating local people about healthy food and nutrition
  • teaching and supporting people in your community how to shop and cook healthier
  • serving balanced and nutritious communal meals
  • using food and growing projects to help connect local people to each other
  • building networks of community-led food projects.

It is a partnership between the Council and Somerset Community Foundation, assisted by the SCC Healthy Lifestyles Team and Somerset Community Food.

Apply for a grant between £500 and £5,000 by 5pm Friday 10 June 2022.
