The growing of fresh produce such as herbs, fruits and vegetables compliments Community Kitchens beautifully!

If you have limited outdoor space, container or wicking bed gardens may be an option. These gardens are extremely space efficient and will enable the group to grow all kinds of things (given the right conditions and space is available).

If you have absolutely no space for growing fresh produce, but would still like to incorporate growing, think about linking in with a Community Garden. Community gardens are places in the community where people come together to socialise and grow fresh produce. They may be open to new members or may even provide the Kitchen with fresh produce. Your local council should be able to provide information about Community Gardens in your local area.
