Welcome to the GIY Food Growing Academy: Your Gateway to Learning How To Grow Your Own Delicious, Nutritious Food.
GIY's tailored grow your own veg courses offer a unique blend of theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience, bringing you on a rewarding journey from soil to plate.
Our Research shows that when people grow their own food it shifts their knowledge, attitudes and behaviour around food. It empowers them to make healthier and more sustainable choices. We call this 'food empathy'.
All of our food growing courses, both in-person and online are rooted in the GIY PRINCIPLES OF SUSTAINABLE GROWING:
- I use peat-free compost.
- I do not use man-made nitrogen fertilizer
- I grow food in spaces that are always covered with plants
- I compost any food waste I create.
- I do not use pesticides.
Our online courses have been meticulously designed to provide you with both a comprehensive and flexible learning experience to master the art of growing your own food, from the comfort of your own home.
