The Food Group was created to bring adults and children together for a couple of hours once a week to grow food and flowers. We are doing this because of our love of nature and our knowing that when people work together they can achieve so much more. It means we can share land, resources and knowledge to grow and eat food together that will sustain us physically through the beautiful food we produce. But most importantly we build friendships and a community that will sustain us emotionally in the difficult times ahead with the climate catastrophe we are all facing.
Food Group Meetings
The Food Group generally meets on the third Monday of the month, at Wendron Plant Nursery. The date of the next meeting is to be decided. Wendron Plant Nursery is family-friendly, so children are most welcome!
Community Growing Days
The Food Group holds fortnightly growing days, on the weekend. We are currently working on a plot of land at Weeth (in Penrose Estate), which is taking shape as a edible plant nursery! Future Weeth meets are:
- Sunday 4th August – 10.30am
- Sunday 18th August – 10.30am
- Sunday 1st September – 10.30am
- Sunday 15th September – 10.30am
Children are really welcome! We can supply most tools, but it will be helpful if you can bring your own gloves. Sadly there is no toilet on site, but there is a public loo about ten minutes walk away.
