Inspired to Grow is a our growing project, helped with funding from Heart of Bucks, which aims to build confidence in young people and communities to have fun sustainably growing diverse and nourishing varieties of heritage plants, and to explore the important connection between fungi, soil and biodiversity. By having the opportunity to grow and learn about fruit and vegetables, we also hope to have a positive impact on both people’s physical and mental wellbeing. Find out more here.
