Are you growing for good? Want to share what you have achieved this year and hear from other projects? Join us at the next Zoom forum!
Tuesday 7th December, 7:30-9pm on Zoom.
We will hear from 2 inspiring growing projects with time to ask questions.
We will then give everyone the chance to share what they have achieved this year and plans for the year ahead.
Amy Willoughby from Plotgate Community Farm, Barton St David
The Plotgate team grows food on 10 acres of land using agroecological principles, with very productive vegetable gardens. It runs as a CSA - members subscribe for a weekly veg share. Amy will speak about how their growing project has developed over the last few years as well as how they involve volunteers and provide training on the farm and veg box scheme.
Sue Cross-Bourton, Root Connections, Stratton on The Fosse
Root Connections (Community Interest Company) runs a community market garden for the benefit of their hostel residents and local people. They grow and sell vegetables, salad, cut flowers and offer Social and Therapeutic Horticulture sessions. Sue is manager at the project, joining in July 2018 and has a background in marketing and catering. She will be talking about how the project works, what they grow, how it is distributed and who is involved.
See you there!
