In our town and nearby we are growing fruit, herbs, nuts, vegetables and edible flowers in public and unused spaces in Totnes for everyone to share.
The potential output of even small spaces is huge. Whether you believe in access to land for all, re-localising our food supply and avoiding packaging, cutting down on food miles, happily overturning the supermarkets' strangle-hold on our food system, or just enjoy being outside gardening with others, come and join us.
Since we started planting nut trees in March 2007 on Vire Island, we have extended our edible growing to many sites all over town and beyond, in public spaces and school grounds. Our initial aim was to plant nut trees, and as the years went by, we also planted soft fruit, herbs, edible flowers and vegetables as well. We also planted a tree nursery and forest garden in Follaton arboretum.
On the many growing sites in Totnes we welcome local people and visitors to get involved in planting and maintenance. You don't have to be an expert gardener. We provide tools and share skills.
Help in other aspects of our project, like publicity and fundraising, are welcome too.
