Our GrowIt! project, which ran in 2011, aimed to bring food production back to where it belongs – the backyard. Participants purchased a fully installed and ready-to-grow vegetable box and were supported by workshops and fun events. By the end of the project, we had installed over 100 veggie plots around the community.
