Do you want to help create a better food system? Then come and be an instrumental part of managing our organisation, at an exciting time of growth and new project development.
Growing Communities is a pioneering community-led organisation based in Hackney, providing a real, practical alternative to the current damaging food system - changing what we eat, how we eat and how it's farmed.
We run a successful organic fruit and veg scheme in Hackney and the Farmers’ Market in Stoke Newington and we grow fruit and veg in Hackney and Dagenham. We help new entrants into farming.
