Food Growing Sessions for Schools and Community Groups
We provide field based sessions on growing and conservation for schools and community groups. Go to our Education page to find out more information about our programmes and learning opportunities.
We also support a team of Volunteers and community members who are active in growing fresh produce which is sold on site. Our volunteers, beneficiaries and partners are part of communities in Ditton, East Malling, West Malling, Larkfield, Snodland, Maidstone, Aylesford and surrounding areas.

What we grow
We grow a wide range of vegetables, herbs, flowers and edible flowers. Everything we grow is free from chemicals and pesticides following organic methods which helps to protect the environment and thrives local ecosystems and wildlife. Our produce is seasonal, fresh and an excellent option for those looking for healthier and nutritious vegetables.
Everyone is welcome to visit the field and buy fresh produce from the field between Mon and Friday (morning). Please do contact us in advance to check what is in season.
We do not grow fruit at the field due to potential issues related to cross contamination. Some crops we usually grow are: cauliflower, cabbage, kale, broccoli, onions, spinach, lettuce, chard, runner beans, french beans, broad beans, courgettes, cucumbers, squash (different varieties), basil, parsley, mint, thyme, rosemary, lavender, tomato (different varieties), chillies, peppers, aubergines and flowers.
