My experience is that many people want or, when you get talking, really yearn to grow fruit and vegetables.
I was lucky enough to be invited to do a workshop at a nearby community garden. The residents are already successfully raising crops such as broccoli, beans and carrots, but have a great thirst to know more. Here we were sowing oriental greens to crop before winter.
It's been a brilliant opportunity for me to meet other people growing veg locally, to share knowledge and to have fun. I'm looking forward to working with 'my' households over the next 12 months.
