Established in 2009, we help people grow food in the city. We have taught
over 2000 people how to grow their own, and helped set up over 60
community food projects.
A wise man once said, “Give a man a bag of chips and you feed him for a
day, teach a man where chips come from and you feed him for a lifetime.”
We all have food in common – we eat it, crave it, and dream about it. Let’s
celebrate and grow it.
Sow the City runs food growing workshops and events that make people
happy and healthy. We will show you how to grow and prepare a greater
variety of food than you can buy in the shops and it tastes great too.
Want to get involved? You can send us an email or follow us on social
media. We are always looking for new food growing projects or ideas.
