Growing Local

NCDC's Growing Local project aims to support local growing and food production by both individuals and groups in Northmavine for their own use, for sharing with others, and/ or for sale.

The Growing Local project builds on some exciting developments around local growing in Shetland at the moment – such as the Shetland Fair Food Policy and Grow Shetland (the latter provided through Transition Turriefield).

Along with Growing Local, these initiatives mainly aim to promote local growing 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.
