‘Grow Community Sopwell’ supports residents to grow their own food at home and in community spaces. They also encourage people to reduce food waste and look after the local environment, as well as provide activities to bring the community together.
Over the last few months, they have been providing edible and wildlife-friendly seeds and seedlings for local residents to try growing at home, creating a vibrant and supportive online community.
Anyone local to the area can join in, and make the most of the ongoing seedling giveaway plus fresh produce which is now being harvested, located on a stall on a resident’s driveway. Visit website for details where to collect the seedlings from.
You can join ‘Grow Community – Sopwell’ and follow our activities online.
