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. However, the next meeting will actually be held on Monday 29th April at 11.30. Wendron Plant Nursery is family-friendly, so children are most welcome!
