Feed Leeds is a network of individuals and organisations working in partnership to support local food growingfor 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: our ‘Connections’ (who we ask to please display our logo).
The next Feeds Leeds zoom meeting is on Monday 24th May 2021 at 4:00pm.
If you would like to attend to talk about Little Veg Libraries, Sow a Rox Extra or anything else, please sign up to our mailing list, and also email email@example.com for the next zoom link (which has already gone out to the list).
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.
