Why join a community growing group?

There are physical, mental and social benefits to food growing and gardening, but for some of us, it can be tough to get started at home - maybe you don't have a garden or it's not big enough for a veg patch. We know it can be difficult to get hold of an allotment in Somerset too and a whole allotment may be too big a commitment. Perhaps, it's simply that you don't know where to start?

Find a local growing group

Fortunately, there are plenty of community schemes running across Somerset, many of which provide residents with an opportunity to learn about food growing. You can get hands-on without the pressure of maintaining the plot alone and often take home hard-earned produce to cook and enjoy for yourselves.
