Shieldfield Grows

Facilitated by Dwellbeing

Do you have a windowsill or an allotment? A plot or an acre? 

Covid-19 has shed light on the fragility of the UK’s food supply chains, so in response we are organising a collective growing effort in the neighbourhood. No matter how little space you have, grow for fun, for yourself, your family or for the wider community. We can provide seeds, compost, containers and advice to help people grow food and we can then distribute any produce to those in need throughout the community. Later in the year we plan to come together for a celebratory Harvest Festival of Growing, as part of the development of the Shieling Community Garden at SAW.

For more details, contact dwellbeingshieldfield@gmail.com putting “Shieldfield Grows” in the subject heading.
