Rural Development - Bridgend County Borough Council
Community Foodie is a partnership project to help communities in the rural areas of Bridgend, the Vale of Glamorgan and Torfaen, to grow their own food. It aims to strengthen communities by increasing the amount of produce grown and consumed locally, and at the same time, to introduce valuable skills, support a healthy lifestyle and bring people of all ages together. One of the major areas of support Community Foodie provides, is bringing landowners and local people together to find suitable growing sites. Help is also available to identify the most suitable growing model, accessing legal and technical advice and forging links with other community growing projects. Financial support is also available to get a project up and running.
