VISION:
A city whose youth are actively and passionately engaged in food, sustainability and equality, and who are empowered to drive change.


MISSION:
We grow innovators, educators, leaders and change makers, whilst inspiring all to create a just and sustainable local food system.

grOWN IT delivers fun, hands-on, solutions-based workshops for young people in schools and youth groups, inspiring engagement in food systems, sustainability and urban agriculture. Crucially, we empower young people to be the producers of their future and the leaders of change.

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.
