summer to grow
8 WEEKS OF GROWING
VEGETABLES FOR FAMILIES
Oh hey there!
Are you ready to GROW?!
After the year we've had, I'm sure you'll agree that we ALL need a bit of time to reconnect. Not just with each other, but with nature too. And what better way to do that, than by growing your own veg.
This summer, I'll take you and your family through a step-by-step guide to growing vegetables from patch to plate. You don't need a huge space to grow, you don't need loads of time or a ton of knowledge or tools but you do need some enthusiasm!
I believe that getting back to nature is not only fundamental to our wellbeing but also teaches us so much about our planet and all of the amazing living things within it. You should also get some tasty treats from it too!
Summer is the perfect time to get some growing in, so grab some seeds and get planting!
Who is it for?
Summer to Grow is intended for anyone that wants to grow vegetables with their family, no matter what their age. Even one year olds will enjoy getting involved!
You don't need to be a seasoned gardener to be able to get involved either. Summer to Grow is ideal for beginners.

What do I need?
Space - You don't need a huge space to be able to grow vegetables. Even a windowsill is perfect
Time - An hour a week is plenty!
Tools - You don't need huge amounts of stuff to grow veg. Hands can be washed and you can reuse old yoghurt pots and other containers for your seeds. You might like to source a spade and a trowel. Check second hand sites or borrow from a friend or family member for a more cost effective solution.
What does it cost?
NOTHING! It is completely free.
