Local

Where much of the food we eat is grown in the surrounding area, so it’s fresh and has low food-miles.

Regenerative

Organic and restorative methods increase nature’s vitality and create a region rich in wildlife.

Connected

Where it’s easy to connect with other people growing and growers are a key part of the community.

Accessible

Where everyone can get locally grown nutritious food, enjoy wildlife-rich places, and access land, resources and support for growing.

Diverse

Where people from all backgrounds feel able to get involved in growing, and a wide variety of projects fit different needs and contexts.
