Growing Communities


Growing Communities is a social enterprise run by local people based in Hackney, East London. 

Through their box scheme and all organic farmers' market they are working to build an alternative food system by buying produce as locally as possible and paying their suppliers a fair price.

The Making Local Food Work programme has been supporting Growing Communities to replicate their model. In total five new box schemes will be started around England under the programme.

Four of these schemes launched in the summer of 2011 and by September 2011 had sold 2,000 boxes between them.
