Families who have been accessing emergency food provision can come along to drop-in sessions at four community venues in County Durham.  The team at OASES are offering activities to help people learn more about growing food by sowing seeds and potting up plants to take away and grow on at home.  

 Growing instructions, information about sessions and the benefits of growing your own for health and the environment are posted on the project facebook page  

 Sue Hines from Willington Open Door Methodist Church said: “People of all ages from our community have loved choosing which vegetables they are going to have a go at growing. There is great enthusiasm as they grow.” 

 Grow Your Own is a Food Durham Project involving OASES, Shildon Alive, The TCR Hub, Big Chefs Little Chefs and Willington Open Door Methodist Church.  It is funded through the SFP Food Resilience Grant.
