Harvest is a project led by the Food Partnership and it's all about growing your own food. From window boxes to community allotments, there are opportunities for everyone to join in. Harvest has brought together lots of different organisations interested in food who will help you learn to grow your own, make use of surplus produce and eat more tasty local food. The Harvest website has guides on how to grow, information about local training courses, seasonal recipes and full details of community food projects.
What Harvest aims to achieve:
We are working with our partners to increase the amount of food grown in the city on windowsills, in back gardens, in allotments, and in public spaces. We’re helping communities to grow food in unusual places like parks, train stations and housing estates. We're scrumping apples from trees around the city to prevent waste and make delicious juices and chutneys. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved: through volunteering at a project, coming on a training course, or attending one of our community food events.
