Foodie Starter Kits give groups a helping hand

Foodie Starter Kits give groups a helping hand

Earlier this year Community Foodie in the Vale of Glamorgan trialed a ‘Starter Kit’ initiative¬†to give groups a helping hand to start a community growing project.

Kit Items included:

  • Raised bed kits, Compost bin, Propagation kit, Dibber, Hand Tools, Gloves
  • Planting Compost, Wheel Barrow¬†

The first six kits were snapped up very quickly and over the past few months Rob the Foodie Officer in the Vale has worked with the groups to set them up.

The groups will be using them for various aspects of food growing ranging from annual vegetables, perennial fruits and herbs.

I really enjoyed supporting all the groups as each brought their own ideas and enthusiasms.

If you are a group in the rural Vale of Glamorgan and would like to apply for a ‘Starter Kit’ contact Rob McGhee on 01446 704835 or email foodie@valeofglamorgan.gov.uk
