Grow Zones is a national initiative and is a fun and practical way to help households grow food in their garden or allotment: www.growzones.com
It works by bringing around 6 households together to work together over a season with everyone doing some work in each other's gardens. Grow Zones is open to all regardless of food growing experience or plot size. Participating in Grow Zones is also an opportunity to learn more about Permaculture which is an approach to garden design based on the relationships seen in nature.
Grow Zones could be for you if you feel daunted at the work needed in your garden/allotment, need a leg up to get started, are interested in exploring permaculture or just want to exchange tips with other food growers while enjoying the camaraderie of the project.
After a successful season's work in spring 2012, the next sessions are planned for spring 2013. To find out more, contact Jacqueline
The Introductory Meeting for 2013 Grow Zones is on Thursday 28th February at 7.30pm at the Friends Meeting House in Jesus Lane. Come along to find out more - all welcome!
