    We believe everyone should have access to healthy, affordable food that’s good for people and planet. This means transitioning to a food system and diet with local, seasonal, organic, plant-based foods at its core. In our beautiful recycled kitchen we teach vital food growing, cooking and composting skills. Our program covers everything from basic plant based cookery skills to sugar free baking, preserving, bread making, foraging and making your own non-toxic homemade cosmetics. We deliver fun, inspiring and informative cookery and preserving classes using produce from Growing Communities veg box scheme to community groups such as teen carers, adults in rehab programs, new parents, low income families, young people excluded from school, young people in care, local food growers and anyone else with a desire and need to learn about healthy sustainable food.

    Growing Communities

    Email:

    Growing Communities is a social enterprise in Hackney that aims to create community-led alternatives to the current damaging food system. We run an organic fruit and vegetable box scheme, a certified farmers’ market every Saturday in Stoke Newington, where all the producers sell organic, biodynamic or wild produce, and three urban market gardens in Hackney parks where we grow organic, zero-food-miles salad for the box scheme and local restaurants and cafés. Local schools, residents and groups with special needs can visit the growing sites to  learn more about organic food growing or to become a regular volunteer. Growing Communities is working to improve what we eat, how we eat and how it’s farmed. Visit the website for more details of how to get involved or to join the box scheme.
