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.

Feel Good Gardens values local food and community, getting outdoors, enjoying the seasons, understanding more about nature, and welcoming everybody to site regardless of age, gender, race or disability.
Our member groups provide the inspiration for these videos, created as part of our Tyfu Pobl programme in Wales but of interest to viewers across the UK, which shows our members in action and illustrate how our support has helped in their development...
