We meet every month – all welcome

Feed Leeds is a network of individuals and organisations working in partnership to support local food growing for its social, economic, environmental and health benefits, and to promote healthy, sustainable and affordable food in Leeds.

There is a huge amount of food growing in Leeds – in gardens, allotments, schools, community plots, parks, city farms etc. Feed Leeds is both a ‘plot to plate’ project, supporting food growers of all kinds, and also a ‘farm to fork’ project, working towards a strategic approach to food for our city. (We do the latter largely via Foodwise Leeds, which we helped to create for this purpose).

Being a network rather than a project, we tend not to grow food as Feed Leeds, but we do aim to help growers and other food projects with advice, contacts, lobbying etc as needed, and most committee members are involved with various growing or other food-related projects: ourConnections’  (who we ask to please display our logo).

Feed Leeds is a member of the Incredible Edible family. See the About page for more – and please do join us.

Next Meeting:

We will be holding meetings by email and video conference for the foreseeable future. If you would like to attend, please sign up to our mailing list.

LESSN Website

Hi everyone.

We have merged the LESSN and Feed Leeds websites, and as a result we will not be using the LESSN newsfeed any more.

All future posts will be made on the main Feed Leeds newsfeed at feedleeds.org. So if you’re not already following that, please do so now.

The url ‘lessn.info‘ now points to the LESSN page on the new Feed Leeds website. Please access using ‘feedleeds.org‘ as we will be retiring lessn.info soon. Thanks

We will continue using the LESSN Facebook and Twitter feeds, and the School Growers Chatroom.

Sow A Row Xtra – and more

This spring Feed Leeds are curating four closely related projects in the hashtag #getgrowingleeds: Sow A Row Xtra, Growing Friendship, Little Veg Libraries and Leeds Hedge Veg. The latter two will come into their own later in the year as we begin to harvest, but we need your help with the first two – especially Sow A Row Xtra.
