Growing the Future is jointly funded by the Welsh Government and the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development under the Knowledge Transfer Scheme. It is being delivered under the Competitiveness Measure of the Rural Development Plan for Wales, 2007-13.

The National Botanic Garden of Wales is the lead body and was successful in achieving this funding in January 2012. The project will continue until January 2015.

Growing the Future is here to help you grow your own food successfully.

We do this by offering training and information to you, close to where you live. All our trainers have years of experience growing their own food, and will share their top tips and vital advice with you.

They are based throughout Wales, at various organisations that partner us in this exciting work.

At the heart of the Growing the Future project, and managing it, is the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Here, dedicated classrooms and demonstration plots provide perfect learning spaces for you to find out more about growing your own food.
