    Here in Otley we have the Home Grown community group helping each other to grow, collect, cook, preserve and drink everything for ourselves - cutting down our carbon-footprint as well as enjoying ourselves.

    We meet monthly at the Otley Courthouse (1st monday of the month). We organise lots of activites:
    Sow-ins - buy seeds/trays compost in bulk and start off our own crops.
    Visits to local food producers
    Talks given by knowledgeable (but interesting) experienced growers, producers, etc.
    End of year social

    and lots more.

    More about us here: vegplantsonline.com/home_grown

    Come along, help yourself and save the planet!

    great idea, can anyone get involved , can someone tell me where the Otley courthouse is - is it near the town centre?
    Sounds such a good idea to promote the lowering of carbon footprints, so good to see people actively getting involved - as a keen cook there is nothing better than fresh home grown produce aswell
