Growing Health Champion

Growing Health

We are thrilled to have become a champion for Growing Health.

We are linking up with organisations in Derbyshire to fulfil the aims of the project. Watch this space for more information!
“This is a national project jointly run by Garden Organic and Sustain, the alliance for better food and farming. Growing Health’s vision is that community food growing should be a natural part of health service provision. Following a succesful first phase, The Tudor Trust agreed to provide additional funding for continued support of the growing health network. In the second phase, we will continue to support community food growing groups to develop links with the health service and gain commissions for their activities – addressing the barriers  that they are currently facing. We will also continue to: raise awareness among commissioners and health professionals about the benefits of using community food growing as part of  health service provison; broaden the evidence base for the benefits of food growing for health; and expand Growing Health Communications activities to a wider audience.” Garden Organic Annual Review 2014
