#growlocal

20160923_152925As part of The Hero Project CIC’s  activities in and around Coalville over the last 6 months we have discovered this amazing local passion for growing things! So this page is dedicated to providing local links to those groups and organisations that want to hear your ideas, identify places to grow and things to grow – they often need people to help them, so you could find a little family friendly volunteering activity too!

We had an amazing trip to Incredible Edible Todmorden  where we took lots of these photos which inspired Master Gardener volunteer John Merison to suggest to local restaurants that they had free herbs for customers to pick and take home to cook with. Within a few days he had three Coalville restaurants signed up – so watch out for some free herbs! Find out more about Master Gardener Volunteering and Training
