Plant and Share Month

Spread the joy of home-grown food with the community

Plant and Share Month

Plant and Share Month ran from 20th April-20th May 2022, encouraging the nation to sow, grow and share with their communities.

We're thrilled that over 500 organisations have sown the seeds for good food in the community.

While the campaign has drawn to a close you can still run a Get Togethers event in your community! Planting and sharing is a great way to come together again, reconnect to where our food comes from and support our environment.

Looking for inspiration for your next growing event? Find out how this group got people growing with limited green space, or check out how to upcycle a welly!

Teenagers from Halifax Academy visited residents at Summerfield House care home and, over the course of a year, transformed their outdoor space.

And there were even bigger changes, too.

Aisha, one of the year 10 students, said "You think old people don't know much, but then you find out they've been doctors, run a business, travelled the world. I love Shirley's stories. Everyone should have a Shirley in their lives!"
