Farnham Local Food wants to start sharing it's skills with the wider community, giving generations to come the means to grow growers.

LET’S TRANSFORM OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FOODYou can make a difference by supporting our Grow a Grower campaign!

With abundant experience in the field, Farnham Local Food is now looking to share its food-growing skills with the wider community. Not only are we growing vegetables, we are also growing growers!

We already have a consolidated team of volunteers behind us so our next step is to train our first ever apprentice as a certified organic grower with the Soil Association. Donate now to our Grow-a-Grower campaign so we can finance this training and also build a weatherproof shelter on our field that will house community events such as workshops, school visits and social gatherings!

Join our efforts by adding a little, or a lot, to our online fundraiser at www.crowdfunder.co.uk/grow-a-grower. With your help we are going to turn our not-for-profit cooperative into a stronger and more sustainable community project.

Why?Local food tastes better! It’s healthier and causes less environmental impact. Besides, this is a chance to bring our community together for a great cause. We would like to see the movement for local and healthy food spread across the entire Surrey-Hampshire border area!

Who are we?We grow vegetables to organic principles year-round from two small sites supplying 75 families with vegetables each week. Work is carried out by a diverse and wonderful team of volunteers led by our professional grower and a newly appointed apprentice. We welcome everyone to come and join in and experience growing vegetables as part of a supportive and fun team. We host local groups and try and spread our knowledge throughout the community.

Can you help us grow a sustainable local food enterprise that will continue to serve the community in and around Farnham?
