In Your Area

What would you like to do?

Learn to build a rocket stove? Hand-feed a lamb? Eat clay-oven baked pizzas using ingredients picked nearby? Wassail round an apple orchard? Cheer on the competitors in The Goat Race? Volunteer to help vulnerable kids get a change of scene? Or simply sit, quietly, in a green oasis in the middle of an built-up area and relax? There's lots of fun, interesting and educational opportunities available at community growing projects across the UK aimed at visitors, volunteers and people who want to set up their own groups.
