Transition Town Forres is Growing Strong

04 May 2020

Transition Town Forres has appointed a new Centre Manager, Anne Owen, who is already promoting a new community food project called 'Growing Strong'.  Anne writes


"We at TTF wanted to contribute to [Forres' Covid-19 response] and help by producing a little extra community food.

"We have over 50 gardeners looking after allotments at the centre. Some of them have volunteered to ‘adopt’ a growing crate to grow extra food this year.

"At harvest time, the fruit and vegetables produced will be distributed to the community. If we are through lockdown by then, then folk are welcome at the centre, otherwise veggie boxes will be distributed to folk through the ‘Covid 19 response’."
