"We have an urgent request for our readers - please support us in our second planning application which is now live on the Herefordshire Council portal. This application is for our much needed track across the site so that our growers and agricultural vehicles/deliveries can access our two main fields. It is very strictly not for the public use, but is essential to conduct our growing activities and site development. We would be extremely appreciative of a supportive comment - the deadline is Saturday 6th July. Thank you!

As ever there's plenty going on at Growing Local beyond our veggie growing, school visits a plenty to our gardens, volunteer days, lunch clubs, community lunches, this Saturday's Big Eat.....wholesale veggie selling.  This week we open bookings for our action packed summer holiday programme of childrens and family workshops. Please do visit our Instagram and Facebook pages for lots of reels and photos of all our exciting garden developments and events."
