Plant & Share Month is Coming 22nd April – 20th May!

28 March 2023

Plant & Share Month is Coming 22nd April - 20th May!

Taking place in spring 2023, Plant and Share Month is a campaign to get the nation growing and sharing produce with their community, school, family or friends. It's run by Food for Life Get Togethers, a Soil Association programme that aims to build connection through growing.

LGNI have teamed up with Food For Life to develop an Intergenerational Gardening resource perfect to inspire gardening activities between generations in the community you live work or go to school!  Download the resource here Intergenerational-gardening-resource-23. or the full Plant & Share Toolkit here Plant and Share Month Toolkit

Plant and Share Month has four key themes, with handy resources and tips each week to support your growing activities:

Week One: 22nd – 28th April – Growing for All

Plant and Share is about making growing your own food easy and accessible for everyone, from first time growers to community organisers.

Week Two: 30th April - 5th May –  Growing to Eat

​With rising food costs, growing food can be a simple and fun way to enjoy good food. Whether you're growing tomatoes on your windowsill, or strawberries in an old container, we've got a host of great resources to help.

Week Three: 6th May – 12th May - Growing for Joy 

Getting out in the garden can do wonders for your wellbeing. This week is all about growing beautiful plants to bring colour and wildlife to your backyard or veggie patch. Why not grow some beautiful flowers to celebrate the Coronation, or lend a hand in your neighbourhood with The Big Help Out?

Week Four: 13th – 20th May – Growing for Nature

Bees, bugs and other wildlife are nature's superheroes, helping produce the food we eat. Growing some nature-friendly plants is a great way to do your bit for the planet.
