Plant and Share Month

Plant and Share Month is a celebration of growing your own food – and friendships - with the community.

From 20 April - 20 May, we are encouraging the nation to dig in and sow, grow and share with their communities.

Whether you’re growing in yoghurt pots for the first time or you’re a seasoned grower with an allotment, Plant and Share Month is for you. It’s easy to get involved:

  1. Plant your seeds – standard plant pots, milk bottles or even yoghurt pots work! Here’s how to upcycle a welly!
  2. Help them grow – head to our Plant and Share Toolkit for growing tips and tricks
  3. Share the seedlings, or the fruit and veg itself! Tell us who you shared them with on Facebook or Twitter using #FFLGetTogethers

Ready to spread the joy of home-grown food? Take part in our free online training to boost your skills, download your Plant and Share Toolkit, and join our digital community to swap tips and ideas.

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!"
