Take Part

Give it a grow logo

Garden Organic are encouraging everyone to 'Give it a grow' and grow something tasty you can eat.

Taking part is easy. If you've not grown your own before then make a pledge and choose to grow one of our recommended vegetables.

If you have grown before but want to help others then first make a pledge, then recruit a new grower, download the growing cards and help them make their first attempt a success.

Look out for advice and support near you

As the national charity for organic growing, we provide a range of programmes to enhance individuals, communities and the environment through organic growing.

Sustainable Communities

Garden Organic's volunteer networks have been provided with a wide range of resources to help people give it a grow for the first time around the country. Look out for Garden Organic Master Composters and Master Gardeners at events near you.

For more information about Garden Organic's Master Composters and Master Gardeners, and to find out where they currently operate, click here.

Support for schools

Our education programmes help teachers and school professionals to develop organic gardening projects that teach children where their food comes from, develop their scientific and environmental awareness and encourage them to eat more fruit and vegetables.

We are working together to support all London schools to use food growing to boost learning; encourage healthy and sustainable choices. For more information visit: www.foodgrowingschools.org.


By becoming a member you can join the thousands of people in the UK and overseas who are already leading the movement for an organic and sustainable future for us all. In return, you’ll have access to a range of benefits to support your own organic growing.

Get growing

Anyone can grow their own food, even on a small scale. All you need is just one pot, some compost (preferably peat free and organic) and some seeds. We've got suggestions for some plants that are simple to grow, delicious to eat, and will grow happily and healthily in your pot.

Choose the season you're planning to grow in, pick your favourite from the list provided and see how you go. There is a growing card for each plant on the list which should help you along the way! You'll find these on the Resources menu tab.
