Plant and Share Month
Growing and sharing food brings people together. And right now, keeping in touch is more important than ever, even if it’s remotely. Getting involved in Plant and Share Month is a brilliant way of connecting with your community. Ready to share the joy of growing this spring?
Bringing communities together
Covid-19 has had a big impact on all of our lives. Despite not being able to get together for community events physically right now, recent YouGov research shows that social bonds are stronger than before, with 40% of people feeling a stronger sense of local community. Food for Life Get Togethers wants to support these renewed community bonds to become the new normal.
Get inspired by these examples of the difference Get Togethers activities have been making to communities.
"Tending the gardens gives me a feeling
of hope for the future, that they will be there looking beautiful and ready for people to meet up again."
