This year we're looking forward to a new phase of our project. Some community members contacted us to ask if we could use their gardens or corners of their fields to grow food. This looked like an ideal way to bring together Diggin' It and our Community Larder as produce grown in these areas will be redistributed to the community through the Larder. Growing food and seed locally is the ultimate cycle of empowerment for communities and it helps to reduce harmful carbon emissions caused by food miles, food packaging and chemical process.
If you have garden space or a green house that is unused which you would like us to grow vegetables in please get in touch.
If you would like to volunteer for this project and join a supported and friendly team, we would love to hear from you. No experience is necessary and if you're a novice it's a good opportunity to develop new skills and keep fit! Volunteering duties would include tending to vegetable patches, planting, harvesting or even just watering if that's all you would like to do. Even if you can only commit on an ad-hoc basis, we would love to hear from you.
