This mass gardening event brings together the community

Words by Abi Scaife

A charity is encouraging people to get busy in their edible gardens at the end of April.

Tell me more.

Running from Friday the 21st until Monday the 24th of April, Good to Grow is a national weekend celebrating the new growing season.

The weekend is based on encouraging community gardening and encouraging volunteers, new and old, to get involved. Getting people together to grow food is good for us humans, and for the planet too - it’s a win/win.

What else?

The Good to Grow website has an interactive garden map that can show you where local community gardens are located.

If you’re interested in getting involved as a volunteer you can use this, or, if you have a garden you want help with, you can register your garden online.

To donate to Good to Grow and keep them operating, you can do so on their website. If you want to register your garden or get involved as a volunteer, you can do that too.
