Growing Together is a partnership initiative of community and environmental sector organisations aimed at unlocking income, land and skills for community growing groups to help them become financially self-sustaining. The aim is to offer tailored support to provide community growing initiatives with the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to move from reliance on grants to a dynamic and balanced income model
Kate Collyns, market gardener and founder of Grown Green has written Gardening for Profit for anyone who is interested in selling sustainably produced produce for profit. A resource guide for growers is also available.
Shared Assets have produced this guide setting out how community food enterprises contribute to local economic resilience and suggests ways in which you might provide evidence of your impact. This can help strengthen the case you can make to local authorities, funders and others when looking for support or access to land.
