Upcoming Events and Opportunities at Communigrow

As Kent’s leading horticultural and educational charity, we are committed to reconnecting people with organic produce and the outdoor environment.

We provide people with an opportunity to learn new skills, meet people, and build their confidence in a unique and welcoming environment. With the help of a dedicated team of volunteers, we grow and harvest a wide selection of chemical-free vegetables on-site for our local community.

Our field is still very productive and with help from volunteers we are picking fresh, chemical-free vegetables weekly to put into our Veg Boxes. We have only recently started harvesting our leeks and our brassicas (kale, cabbage etc.) are still producing beautifully. The produce we have currently available includes: Kale, Chard, Lettuce, Leeks, Squash, Cabbage, Carrots, Potatoes, Cucumber, Celery, Turnips, Swede, Onions and Chillies.

During the next few weeks we will be holding a series of events to help local people connect with their natural environment while also learning to grow and produce delicious fresh food.
