The Our Growing Community guidance notes provide more information about the different places where you could grow fruit and vegetables. They highlight ‘things to consider’ and describe how to ‘make it happen’. With real life examples and suggestions of ‘who can help’, the notes will help you find the right support and assistance to start your own food growing community.

The guidance notes cover 20 different places where you can grow fruit and veg - anything from the traditional allotments to high streets and town Centres and work places. There is also a guidance note on "other places to grow food" which includes balconies and terraces, golf courses, rail and bus stations and roof tops.

You can download the whole Our Growing Community pack or individual guidance notes by clicking on the links in the right hand side boxes.
