Community gardens, schools and growing enterprises are invited to host a Good to Grow weekend (formerly The Big Dig) between Friday the 23rd and Monday the 26th of April. To celebrate and prepare for the new growing season, promote their activities and encourage people to get out and grow food!
To take part, simply go to www.goodtogrowuk.org/join_us/ and register as part of the network to promote your garden, recruit volunteers and measure how much food you are growing (and money you’re saving).
Once your garden is registered, go to www.goodtogrowuk.org, log in to your private area on the website and click on the ‘Good to Grow Sign up’ box to answer a few short questions about what’s happening on the day. Your garden will automatically appear on the map of Good to Grow gardens – ready for you to share, network and promote to volunteers.
There will be a pack of publicity materials and other resources to download from your dashboard to help you spread the word in your local area and help you on the day.
