Hello! And welcome!
If you have only just come to this site a lot of what you read might not make sense. You won’t have met Ru, the grower, or my fellow apprentice Bruce. You won’t know that Ann-Marie and Precious are two wonderful, regular volunteers. And you won’t know that I work only once a week as a grower at Growing Communities, a social enterprise based in Hackney in London, where we grow salad leaves for our local organic vegetable box scheme. But hopefully you’ll get a sense that the words that I write are part of a learning process. And if you read this regularly, you might learn something too. If you are lucky enough to be eating the salad we grow, you’ll also get a sense of where it comes from and how much care we take to get it to you fresh and delicious. I hope you’ll enjoy it more for having visited this site.
If you have the time, and the inclination, go back to the beginning, to where I started out in April. And take my growing journey by clicking on the days highlighted in blue on the calendar to the right.
