Growing your own food is a rewarding & simple way to get regular exercise
whilst producing affordable & tasty food with a low carbon footprint!
Whether you have a garden or not, sharing can make it possible to grow and eat your own food.
Garden sharing is when people get together to share gardens and the food they grow.
Working with others lightens the load and can make growing more fun.
There is almost always a way, if you want to make something happen!
Make it easy
Growing in tubs & pots is a great way to start growing your own food.
Potatoes, peas, beans, carrots, kale, spinach, courgettes & herbs are just a
few examples of crops that grow well in containers.
Placed on window ledges or by the back door, they're convenient, require
little maintenance (regular watering & feeding) & yield a good harvest.
Get the kids involved and give them skills for life.
You can't beat the quality & taste of home grown produce!
Grow what you can, where you can!
Free food can be found in your local high streets, like these planters in Elgin.

There's a growing movement of community growers in Moray such as
Local schools like Logie Primary, not only grow their own, they cook & serve it in
their community cafe, and bring local folk together to enjoy it.
Be inspired, join local groups & grow together!
