Hutchison Home Grown and Longstone Home Grown are a projects of South West Edible Estates, working in partnership with the Clean Green Hutchison Group, to support folk to grow vegetables at home whilst their locked down by Covid 19. The project is being delivered by our community gardener, Alan Gordon.
We will provide households with a free Home Grown starter pack, containing seeds, compost and pots. Our community gardeners will give instructions and advice through our Facebook Page and a Group. They will publish a series of videos, and answer questions for those who join the Facebook Group. We also encourage more experienced growers to join the project to share their knowledge and inspire us with their own growing at home.
To participate you need to join the Facebook Group, which you will find by pressing the ‘Visit Group’ button from the Facebook Page, follow the link below.
