The threat of global warming, diminishing fossil fuel reserves, and major concerns about food security are problems that the global population must face. It is a disengagement between mankind and the planet that has caused these issues. Many of us look to our screens instead of to the outdoors for inspiration, and more people than ever are eating food having no idea how it got to their plates. It is time to change this.
The NHS are spending £6 billion per year on food related diseases, and the World Health Organisation sees obesity as the most serious global public health challenge for the 21st century. Clearly we need to show our children how to care for themselves.
We feel strongly about these issues; And we feel strongly that our programmes will contribute towards solving them.

From Seed to Celebration
To engage people with food, we focus on all stages of a plant’s life cycle: We start by planting the seed. As it grows, you will nurture the plant and learn to make and preserve the plants in to food and xmas gifts. And finally we share this experience with others in a celebrational event, showcasing the hard work. Giving you an end goal to work towards during the work.
The What Happens Next Garden
Regardless of your situation, we can create edible gardens anywhere: Dead areas within existing flower beds, overgrown forgotten allotment projects, raised borders in concrete playgrounds, and if you have no room, we can build vertical wall gardens.
We provide weekly workshops to demonstrate to the user how to use the programme. We also incorporate learning outcomes so the programmes are compatiable for schools.
Whether it be an inner-city or on the fringe of the countryside, we incorporate plants into our projects that are both edible and that supports local ecosystems. We provide resources to understand the wider environment.
