During 2020 we were able to find funding to support a project that would look at growing in Angus.

Kate Munro took the lead on this project and we are delighted to have compiled this short booklet that tells the story of growing in Angus.

“The Covid-19 pandemic changed life for all of us. Overnight, we were forced to find a new ways of doing just about everything. While this has been distressing and unsettling for some, it has also given each of us a chance to reassess life and brought unexpected pleasures.
THE NEED TO GROW
One inspiring bonus of the pandemic is a rush to get growing. Across the county allotment associations and community gardens are inundated with keen new growers. Established community growing groups are supplying new people with local food. People are connecting with others to support food hubs and those in need across Angus. It is a truth our grandparents knew instinctively, something governments have told us for decades, it took a global pandemic for us to hear it: Growing is good for you, your community and your planet. This booklet celebrates all those growing in Angus and invites you to get involved in growing where you live. So whether you want to do your bit for the planet, your pocket or just enjoy being outside, take a look and join in. THANK YOU to those listed: It has been a pleasure to share your enthusiasm and learn more about the vital growing you do. If have missed your project; accept my apologies, – and email growangus@gmail.com.”
