How's it growing?

We’re here to support you on your growing journey, from seed to harvest

If you’re looking for support and guidance on your growing journey, this is the place to be. We are developing a programme to support groups, schools and individuals – whatever your experience, whatever the season – to get growing, and engage with your communities to share resources, skills and stories.

Whether you took part in The Big Seed Sow or you’re just starting out, we’ll be sharing advice and guidance on nurturing your plants and the connections you can make in your communities. From growing tips to garden troubleshooting, and inspiring stories from our community champions, groups and schools, we’re here to support you through this summer season. If all goes well, you’ll be ready for our next nationwide activity, The Big Food Share, come autumn!
