Seed2Plate repurposing plots of land to grow FREE fresh fruit and veg for local low-income families.
The idea for Seed2Plate came from a group of unemployed people who recognised a need within their own communities for a growing space to provide free fresh fruit and veg for low-income families unable to afford a healthy diet.
We currently have two main growing plots, one in Weymouth and one in Wimborne, we are also developing community growing gardens in Ferndown, Turlin Moor and Somerford.
We are creating a working oasis of greenery with the added benefit of producing nutritional, healthy produce.
Part of the produce grown will be sold via local shops and markets to enable us to put money back into the project.
Each purchase goes towards helping us provide FREE vegetable food boxes to those who need them most in the local community.
By engaging with the community through the Seed2Plate project, our aims are to increase access to fresh fruit and vegetables,
build community cohesion, promote inter-generational skill sharing, and give residents pride in their community.
The Seed2Plate project came out of an Inspire Dorset Team Challenge, if you or someone you know is unemployed and is looking to get back into employment, build on their skills or has an idea for a social enterprise then visit our Inspire Dorset page here (our Building Better Opportunities Programme), for more information.
