Across Luton there are a number of public food growing spaces which are free to access. These sites are managed and all tools, seeds and plants are provided. Any produce grown can be taken away for free by the individuals who help at the project and is also given out to those in need.
You can choose to dig potatoes or just come and sit and have a cup of tea.
The benefits of being outdoors in the community gardens include:
• Fresh air and the sounds of the outdoors
• Company and friendship
• Being busy and purposeful
• A weekly activity to look forward to
• Working at your own speed and level
• Dropping in when you feel able
