Case studies

One of the best ways to find out how to increase your financial sustainability and generate more income is to study how other groups have done it.

Our case studies are intended to act as inspiration for community growers (and businesses who may be able to support them), showing the highs and lows experienced by groups who have been there, done that and bought the t-shirt!  The list will continue to grow as the initiative develops, including examples of how businesses can become involved and the benefits that creates. 

If you think your group would be a suitable candidate for a case study and want to share your knowledge with other groups, then we would love to hear from you. Please contact the Growing Together Co-ordinator Heidi Seary on heidi@farmgarden.org.uk
