Growing together - building communities
Welcome to Get Growing 2021
Get Growing is a community project delivered by Hands of Hope and funded by the National Lottery. The aim is to get as many people as possible growing their own food - adults, children, families, schools, community groups - from window-sill to plant pot to patio to garden to allotment - whatever space you have. If you are experienced great, if not, don’t worry, it's all about trowel and error!
Between May and June we will be delivering the Grow Kits matched to your space and, once delivered, we will provide ongoing support throughout the year.
We have established Facebook and Instagram pages where you can post your questions as well as sharing images of your growing experience.
If you grow too much, remember to share your surplus with your neighbours.
This site also provides growing instructions and tutorials as well as a link to send your questions directly to us. So, all that's left is for you to, "Get Growing"!
