Everyone’s talking about growing your own veg these days: Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on TV, countless articles in newspapers and magazines and the Government’s latest food strategy. There’s a huge renewed interest in growing, but many of us lack the skills to get out and do it. Growing your own is also the perfect solution for anyone whose new year’s resolution involves spending less money or getting their outside space sorted!*h1*

Enjoying local food
Harvest Brighton & Hove is all about getting our city growing, eating and enjoying more local food. From window boxes to community allotments, there are opportunities for everyone to join in. Harvest is led by the Brighton & Hove Food Partnership and has brought together lots of different organisations interested in food who will help you learn to grow your own, make use of surplus produce and eat more tasty local food.
