Setting up a community food growing project

Community food growing projects help support community development on new Aylesbury Garden Town sites, such as adopting community programmes and projects and accessing funding themselves.

Their aim is to:

  • support local sustainable food production - the fruit and vegetables grown are shared with the wider community
  • help groups of people create a garden on a piece of land with shared access
  • create positive community relationships, social interaction, education and outreach

The projects are based on 5 ways of wellbeing:

  1. Connect with people
  2. Be active
  3. Take notice of the world around you
  4. Keep learning and try something new
  5. Give some time to help others

Applying for community board funding

Applications are invited for organisations that can show a need for financial support and evidence that their project meets the community board priority areas and address a local need.
