Growing Local Northmavine is a programme of activities aiming to encourage, support and promote local growing and food production by individuals for their own use, for sharing with others and/or for sale.
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.
