Grow and Give Scheme
The Grow to Give scheme was first launched in June 2020 and is a community food initiative that has developed and expanded over the last three years. It works by encouraging people to grow more food in their garden or allotment and donate the surplus to community foodbanks and fridges. Collection sites are set up at allotments making it quick and easy for local residents to donate. If you would like to get involved with your local Grow and Give scheme contact Justine Hamer on 07810 155450 or e-mail at: growtogive@icloud.com
