About Us

GIY is a Not-for-Profit dedicated to helping people to grow some of their own food at home, at work, at school and in the community.

We know that anyone can learn to grow food. Even those who don’t think they have the time, or the space. It’s amazing what you can grow quickly, how little time some plants require and how easy it is to pick up a few skills and a bit of know-how. There is so much that can be grown even in a small container, on a windowsill or balcony, or on a patio.

Of course, the whole point of growing some food is to eat it. We love to teach adults and children how to cook delicious, seasonal, homegrown food. Seasonal recipes that are tasty and vibrant combined with cooking techniques that respect and enhance the flavour and nutrition of fresh food are our specialities.

In addition to our online resources we run growing, cooking and wellbeing classes in our Food Education Centre, GROW HQ in Waterford, Ireland.
