The main aim of the project is to promote, support and encourage community grown food in Wales.

Community Growing has become hugely popular in recent years. There are countless projects, schemes and initiatives available across Wales. Publicity has brought the serious issue of future food security, climate change and health and well-being to the forefront. Nutritional experts and celebrity chefs have further highlighted issues such as healthy eating in schools and locally sourced food.

It is acknowledged that there are many difficulties facing people who wish to start community growing projects. This action plan will aim to help address some of these. Difficulties include lengthy waiting lists for local authority allotments, problems related to finding land for new growing projects and the lack of an appropriate dedicated funding stream in Wales.

An overarching community growing strategy will aim to draw these disparate strands together in a shared plan of action and avoid duplication or confusion.
