Interested in growing your own fruit and veg?
Why not take a look at the Landshare website at www.landshare.net which is there to connect people who want to grow their own fruit and vegetables to people who have space to share. It is also a community website that enables people to share knowledge and resources, encourage debate and discussion, plus lower barriers to entry into the “grow your own” movement.
