About Growing Local

Growing Local is a community interest company that encourages and educates communities to grow, cook and eat local food.

In the summer of 2023 Growing Local took over a new 19-acre site on the southern edge of Hereford to establish a CSA (a community supported agriculture project), a children’s educational garden and heritage orchards.

Later in 2024 construction will start on The Southside building which will house a ‘field to fork’ cook school, indoor learning space, cafe and produce shop.

Buy Our Veg

This spring we begin sowing and planting our very first crops for the new Growing Local CSA. The first release of crop shares will be available from early July 2024.

CSAs are a partnership between those who eat the food and those who grow it to ensure that fresh, local, nutritious, sustainably grown vegetables are available for the local community. It is an opportunity for everyone to invest and share in the production of our local food and enjoy a variety of produce through the seasons. 

Educational Projects

Growing Local will offer a range of growing, nature, climate change and cook workshops to pre-schools, primary and secondary schools, young people, community groups, families and adults.

Whilst our education garden is being constructed we are running youth and adult volunteer programmes to assist with the build together with our Big Eat and adult Lunch Clubs in Hereford.
