GROWBox Explainer

GIY is a not for profit social enterprise helping people to grow some of their own food at home, at work, at school, and in the community. Our vision is for a healthier, more sustainable and more connected world where people grow their own food.

We know that growing your own food can seem like a daunting task... You may be faced with a number of obstacles; lack of time, lack of space and, mostly, lack of know how. That’s why we created GROWBox. A starter food growing kit like no other, GROWBox has been designed to make growing as easy & accessible as possible.


  1. Order the GROWBox that's right for you - and your garden!
  2. Unpack your GROWBox. You'll receive; Seeds, Compost Discs, Growing Containers, Plant Labels, Pencil & Notepad, & a Growing Guide. 
  3. Start sowing. Expand the Compost Discs by simply adding water, mix well. Sow your seeds according to instructions in your Growing Guide, and watch your plant grow!
