Somerset Food Projects Map

Somerset has a incredible network of community growing projects, with many opportunities to get involved.

Why join a community growing group? There are physical, social and mental health benefits to food growing and gardening, but for some of us, it can be tough to get started at home. Maybe you don't have a garden or it's not big enough for a veg patch, you may be waiting for an allotment or can't manage one on you own. Perhaps, it's simply that you don't know where to start?

Find a local growing group: Fortunately, there are many community projects across Somerset providing residents with an opportunity to learn about food growing. You can get hands-on without the pressure of maintaining the plot alone and often take home hard-earned produce to cook and enjoy for yourselves.

Use our map below to find a growing group near you. Visit this Food Resilience Map for other types of community food projects.
