Community Food Growing

South Ribble Borough Council's Regeneration team has upgraded an area of derelict and under-used land in Broadfields, Leyland to start a community food growing project producing fresh organically grown produce.

  

In the current economic climate with food prices on the increase, interest in food growing has never been higher. With current provision limited, the Council has seen a significant increase in waiting lists together with a number of local schools and community groups wanting areas to undertake their own eco-activities.

Giant veggie patch

Is a local community food-growing garden in Leyland that is run by local people for local people. It is managed on a regular basis by a group of keen gardeners who either have an interest in food growing or want to work with other people on a plot. They work with local schools, elderly people and local residents and welcome anyone onto site who has an interest in growing their own fruit and veg. You can also purchase a selection of fresh vegetables when they are in season.
