Vegetable planters for Newsome village

Growing Newsome are hoping to have some vegetable planters in Newsome village centre. The children from Hillside Primary would like to look after the plants, with help from Active Social Care. We’re looking for sources of funding to get the project started, and we’re talking to local businesses and others about where we might be able to put the planters.

We’re really pleased that Hillside Primary approached us with the idea, because this project will help us to promote the fantastic work of all the local food growers across the Newsome area, including the children from local schools.

Having vegetables and salads growing in the village where lots of people will see them every day could make a big difference to everyone – as well as making the area look nicer, it will encourage more people to get growing their own local food. It’s also a good way for us to build stronger relationships between the community and local businesses, which is important if we want to see more locally grown food available in Newsome in the future.

Can you help? Please get in touch if you’d like to:

  • help to build the planters
  • offer us a space to put a planter in
  • sponsor a vegetable planter
  • or help in any other way
