There was a good attendance at our screening of the film ‘Grow Your Own’ at the Carlton Theatre, and the audience enjoyed this gentle British comedy that showed some additional positive benefits of growing your own food. (It was based on a real project in Bootle that gives traumatized asylum seekers plots in a local allotment to help them develop a sense of purpose and self-sufficiency).
A number of people subsequently expressed interest in joining a new Gardening/Food subgroup of Teign Estuary Transtion and a meeting is to be held on 24th May to take this further. More about this shortly but make a note in your diaries!
Below is a picture the ‘4-Tier Growhouse’ kindly donated by Jack’s Patch that was raffled after the film.
