New Forest Food Challenge
Project Category: Community Interest Company
Eat local, grow local.
Encouraging schools, children and adults alike to start to grow their own food. We run seed planting activities and stalls in the Spring and help schools start their food growing areas.
Every December we have been teaming up with Transition Southampton’s TREE-mendous project, offering quality garden trees at bulk buy prices, and over the last 7 years have collectively bought over 500 trees for the surrounding area.
We also support local growing projects:
Abundance Lymington – who coordinate local volunteers to pick unwanted apples and distribute them to local pre-schools and charities.
Downton Seedy Sunday – who run their annual event in the north of the New Forest.
Pennington Community Allotment Group – funding their first 7 apple trees.
Our Project also helps raise local awareness of the New Forest Marque – an accreditation scheme set up to help the production, promotion and distribution of New Forest produce.
