Grow Zones are an idea developed by the Earth Abbey group. The concept is that a group of people take some time to work on each other’s gardens, giving them a push on tasks like creating new raised beds or building a composting area and making them into much more productive areas.
They began in Bristol, where EarthAbbey are based but are now looking to sow new zones around the UK. To explore that, we are welcoming Chris Sunderland to Oxford on 5 March, which you can read about (and sign up for) on the House244 blog. Elsewhere, there is also an expanded introduction to the topic, written by Chris Sunderland, called Grow Zones — reconnecting with the land.
If you are interested and in Oxford, then you would be very welcome to come and join our discussion on 5 March; if you are further afield but think it might work in your area, EarthAbbey would love to hear from you.
