NCDC's 'Growing Local' project aims to support local growing and food production in Northmavine. 'Growing Local' builds on some exciting developments around local growing in Shetland at the moment – including the 'Shetland Fair Food Policy' and the 'Grow Shetland' project. Like Growing Local, these aim to help increase access to locally-grown produce, highlight the benefits of growing to health and wellbeing, reduce ‘food miles’, and identify business opportunities linked to locally-grown produce.
Please check out our content below, including latest news from the project, local grower blogs, recipes using locally-grown produce, and links to useful online growing resources. Please also click on the below link to see the latest from our Growing Local Facebook page.
