Grow is a community gardening group based in Grosmont. Since 2010 we have cultivated our communally run allotment in a field outside the village. Over the years we have built a large polytunnel, a shed and a water supply. We grow fruit and vegetables all year round, from artichokes to aubergines, cavolo nero to courgettes, raspberries to rhubarb, mange-tout to prizewinning marrows…
We are always open to new members! There is a small joining fee and monthly subscription, and members take whatever produce they need from the field. All we ask is a regular commitment of time. We hold weekend working parties throughout the year, where we concentrate on particular seasonal tasks and divide up responsibilities for the season. In summer these are quite often followed by barbecues!
If you would like to come up and see what we are doing, please drop us a line using our Contacts Us page.
