East Midlands

Nottingham, Derby, Leicester, Coventry...There are lots of big towns and cities in the East Midlands each with their own social farming, gardening and growing needs and that makes it an important region for Social Farms & Gardens.

See below for a map view or list of Social Farms & Gardens members in this region, as well as local news, events and case studies. There are also lots of useful information resources available for social farmers, gardeners and growers on our Resources page.  

You can find out more about the Nottingham Growing Network (NGN), supported by SF&G. NGN is a networking initiative that aims to build links between community growing groups in the Nottingham area, who share an interest in gardening with respect and care for the environment.

If you are looking for members that offer commissioned health, social care or special education services (such as care farms), please follow this link.
