Community Food Growing Project

Groundwork Hull with funding from Hull City Council aim to start a city wide food growing revolution.  They aim to help groups and individuals gain the confidence, skills, knowledge and resources needed to grow and cook their own food.  Groups and individuals can get involved in the following ways:

Groups: (Open to existing groups or those that want to form a group). Whether you are already growing food or would like to start growing food, Groundwork can provide help and support to you, from resources to training.

Green Champions: Whether you have green skills already or just a passion for food growing, Groundwork can support you to develop the skills and knowledge to encourage and support others .

Volunteer: For those who would simply like to be sign posted to a group where you can be part of the growing revolution

Groundwork would also like Companies and Organisations to get involved.  They can do this in a number of ways:

Employee Volunteering: Some sites may need help to prepare.  The additional support that an employee volunteering scheme can bring would be invaluable.

Corporate Donations:

  • Donations of Resources – you may have surplus materials such as timber. Guttering off cuts, palettes, large food / other container that can be used to make planters and vertical growing systems
  • Top soil / compost
  • Seeds/plants

Employee Donations: Groundwork can support companies to run an employee donation day through their `Clean Out Your Shed’ campaign that enables staff to donate surplus or unwanted seeds or garden tools.

If you would like to be involved in some way then please contact Groundwork on (01482) 216188
