It is important that we continue to eat well over the next couple of months. By nourishing your body and mind we can positively impact our physical and mental wellbeing.
GIY aim to get half a million people growing food with Grow It Forward
In partnership with Healthy Ireland and Libraries Ireland, GIY today announced the launch of Grow it Forward. Through this initiative, 50,000 free food growing kits will be given away, with participants are asked to use the kits to share the experience with ten people, enabling half a million people across Ireland to enjoy the wide range of benefits that come from growing food at home.
Budding GIYers are invited to claim a Grow it Forward pack at giy.ie/growitforward or by contacting their local library, as all 330 branches nationwide are helping to drive the effort. As part of the Government’s Keep Well programme, this campaign is designed to help the nation eat well by inspiring and supporting people to grow some of their own food at home while connecting with friends and family to join them.
Each food growing pack includes seeds for beetroot, carrots, salad leaves, peas and tomatoes; a guide to help grow them and a postcard and gift tags to help share them. Those who sign up will also receive regular e-mails with growing support, video clips and ideas for how to ‘grow it forward’ by passing on seeds, seedlings or produce in accordance with social distancing guidelines.
