 VISION

 

 

A city whose youth are 

actively and passionately

engaged in food, sustainability

and equality, and who are empowered to drive change.

   Crucially, we empower young people to be the 

producers of their future and the leaders of change.

Our food system is

responsible for 30-40% of

global Greenhouse Gas emissions

 

The average age of a UK farmer is 59

 

Between 45,000 - 70,000 people in

Bristol are food insecure

 

UK imports 75% of all fruit and vegetables

 

Screen time among UK teenagers

averages 9 hours a day

 

9% of young people in the

UK feel they have nothing

to live for

So here at grOWN IT we are ready to start          

sowing the seeds of this future; arming our youth       

with the knowledge and attitudes they'll need to   

show us how it should have been done.

We grow innovators, educators, leaders and change makers, whilst inspiring all to create

a just and sustainable local food system.

MISSION

  delivers fun, hands-on, solutions-based             workshops for young people in schools and    youth groups, inspiring engagement in food systems, sustainability and urban agriculture. 

           

  We also work with businesses and corporate groups,    delivering workshops to develop staff awareness

  around food choices relating both to environment   and sustainability and to health and wellbeing, and supporting businesses in their food procurement. 

   A food system that is destroying our planet 

and wasting precious resources, that leaves one    

billion hungry and one billion overweight, and      

 that prioritises profit over our health, our        

planet and our future, not to mention         

profit over taste!          

   We've created a food system that doesn't add up. 

We know we can do better. And we know 

 that we owe it to young people to help them 

make a glorious, nourishing future a reality.

   It's going to take inventors, growers,   

campaigners, advocates, politicians and a  

whole lot of knowledge and passion.
