Statistics illustrate how the Food Partnership's work changes lives

Last weekend 19th September the Grace Eyre allotment was broken into and their sheds deliberately set on fire. The result was the tragic loss of the majority of their equipment costing over £1700 to replace. The allotment is invaluable to their service users - who have a wide range of learning disabilities - as it provides both a peaceful and therapeutic environment.

As many people will know, the Food Partnership supports a network of 70 community gardens where over 4,000 people grow food together each year. Today we're launching a new video to showcase these unique spaces and to encourage more people to give gardening a try. 

The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership has been awarded funding for an exciting new, 3-year project called 'Sharing the Harvest', which aims to help more vulnerable people in the city to benefit from gardening.

The Food Partnership is seeking an independent evaluator to work alongside us for a three-year project called 'Sharing the Harvest'.

A 'Planning Advisory Note' (PAN) to encourage food growing in new developments was released last year, as part of Harvest Brighton & Hove, written by Food Matters and Brighton & Hove City Council.

Harvest Brighton & Hove has been named 'best community food growing project' in the Local Food Awards. Over 500 projects across England were eligible for the awards, which were run by the Big Lottery's Local Food Fund.

So you want your own plot but you’ve heard that you might be waiting ten years to get it? We often get asked about how to get an allotment and some of our answers might surprise you.
