Last year we ran a trial community growing project where some members were sent a packet of tomato seeds to grow at home.
After the success of last year’s project, we extended the offer to all DBT members earlier this month and now a total of 160 members sign up for this year’s campaign, up from 12 who trialled the project last year. Those who are taking part will receive free packets of tomato seeds
Around a third of those who have signed up are retired members, with the rest being serving members, and around 40% have reported that they are not skilled in gardening so we will be sending additional emails along the way to support those who haven’t grow their own veg before.
Fresh, home-grown vegetables can not only be a healthy hobby but provide a nourishing source of your five-a-day and we look forward to seeing updates from those taking part later this year.
