Growing your own fruit, vegetables and herbs is one of the most fun and rewarding things you can do.

Growing your own doesn't just save you money and reduce food miles, it is also one of the healthiest things you can do.

You can pick and choose from a huge variety of different fruit and vegetables, enjoy the delicious taste of home grown crops and know exactly where your fruit and vegetables has come from and how it has been grown. Add the brilliant feeling you get when you tuck into your own produce, and it's no wonder more and more of us are choosing to live the 'good life' and grow our own produce.

If you are short of space in your garden, don't despair; many fruit, vegetables and herbs can be successfully grown in containers and even in hanging baskets. Carrots, beetroots, cabbages, leeks, spring onions, cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes and strawberries will all thrive in pots.

Alternatively, you can get involved by joining one of the community gardens that are springing up around the Boston area, including Central Park and Geoff Moulder Leisure Complex.  For further details please contact Ian Farmer, using the contact details to the left.
