Grow Sheffield were chosen by Lush as one of the projects they wish to support as we share many of their founding principles.
To that end, Vanessa did an interview with them, and it makes for some fascinating reading.
The link to that story is here, so click it and see what Vanessa and the Lush boys and girls have to say about sustainability and food waste reduction!
There are links in the text to illustrate their point, and also links to other projects around the country who run similar projects to Abundance.
As you may already know, Grow Sheffield is undergoing some pretty massive changes right now.
To reflect these, we’ve changed our front page, and over the coming few days, you’ll see further changes as we add to the new section ‘How To’, then we’ll be changing ‘Resources and Info’ into an ‘Archive’ section to show a lot of our previous articles and past news.
Please bear with us as we make these changes.
Don’t worry: we’ll keep you posted.
It’s not long until the big parade on Sunday 9th April! We are looking for people who can help us out on the night by volunteering in one of these roles:
