Project Category: Social Enterprise
Growing Communities is an award-winning social enterprise based in Hackney, east London. We run a weekly organic fruit and veg box scheme and the all-organic Growing Communities farmers’ market. We grow food on our Patchwork Farm in Hackney, made up of several small urban market gardens, and Dagenham Farm. We train new growers, mentor other food retailers who put people and planet before profit and we campaign to build a better, fairer food and farming system that works for everyone.
