Reconnecting People to the Places where their Food Comes From

Communigrow is a registered educational charity aiming to reconnect people with where their food comes from. Learning, teaching and sharing are at the core of all aspects of the project: food production, conservation and wellbeing.

We grow a wide range of seasonal produce which is chemical free and cultivated according to Wholesome Food Association principles. We sell locally via our veg box scheme, and through community outlets, for a suggested donation.

We enable people of all ages to gain skills and confidence in a creative environment, as well as to learn about how the natural world works. We grow our produce using sustainable methods that reduce the impact we have on the planet (natural systems, no chemicals, all as low carbon as we can) plus we are expanding habitats for conservation and environmental study.

We provide field based sessions on growing and conservation for schools and community groups.

A Message from Sue Sutton, Volunteer

“Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy volunteering at the communigrow field. For me the benefits are having the chance to be outside when most of my week is spent commuting and being inside.  I enjoy the fresh air and the exercise, more importantly it gives me an opportunity to work quietly and gain some much needed “head space”.

 

” I have met lovely people and I am learning new things all the time including discovering vegetables I have never heard of.  Which is handy being a vegetarian. Lots of new food to try!

It’s especially nice to be able to give something back to the community.
