Welcome to Communigrow

We are a sustainable food education charity located in East Malling, Kent, at the heart of the ‘Garden of England’.

We show children, young people and adults how to grow fresh food in a chemical free, sustainable way, consequently benefiting physical and mental wellbeing in harmony with the natural environment.

A safe space; a chance to pause

The therapeutic benefits of gardening are well-evidenced. Our relaxed, inclusive environment enables people to learn at their own pace and feel valued as part of our community.

What we do

Chive flowers
Sustainable food growing

In our beautiful outdoor learning environment children and young people, of all abilities, enjoy hands-on learning opportunities.

Who we help

We work with the whole community from toddler groups to older adults. We teach food growing skills; bolstering wellbeing and promoting physical health in our garden and also within local communities.

Veg boxes
food for all

We aim to donate 10% of Communigrow produce to local food projects. The remainder is used for healthy living and cooking classes, shared with our volunteers and is available for purchase via our veg box scheme.
