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.
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
We have started on our very first steps to cultivation on the site – ploughing and laying a green manure seed to feed and replenish the soil ready for our first growing season in 2024.
Over the winter we will be planting the orchards and setting out the growing areas. In early spring we will start sowing and planting our very first veggies! You will be able to buy and collect our veg through a crop share scheme from June/July 2024.
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.
