  • Our Story

    Growing People is an exciting urban horticultural social enterprise exploring sustainable alternatives to growing food for the local community. At our Urb Farm in the heart of Wolverton, in the city of Milton Keynes we:

    • grow seasonal fruit, veg, salad and flowers using environmentally sensitive techniques and produce eggs, plants and handmade preserves which are sold through our Veggie Mail scheme and the popular Urb Farm open days
    • welcome the whole community; hosting school visits, volunteer groups, corporate workdays and local residents who come to learn and explore at the farm
    • have created a wildlife haven, home to numerous species, many that are in decline or endangered. With our ponds, plants and woodland, and the varied habitats and food sources available to creatures big and small, our small patch of land has astonishing biodiversity!
    • work with an amazing team of young people who have struggled with mainstream education. Their enterprise work experience is supported by accredited training, enabling trainees to build confidence and make good choices for the next steps in life

    You can order our produce through veggiemail@mkchristianfoundation.co.uk
