Who are Grow It Yourself (GIY)?
A not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to supporting people to grow some of their own food at home, school, work or in the community founded by Michael Kelly in 2008.
What is Sow & Grow?
GIY founder Michael Kelly says: “Getting children to grow their own food will help them to develop a thing we call ‘food empathy’ which will follow them right through their lives. By growing some of their own food they develop a better understanding of how food works which is a proven lever to a healthier, happier life. Food growing has taught me (and my own kids) to have a proper relationship with real, healthy, life-giving food – that’s the greatest gift there is.”
