RFGN awarded grant by Tesco's

RFGN has been awarded a £2,000 grant by Tesco's Bags of Help scheme.

We are using the money to run a campaign to get more people involved in growing vegetables for Reading Town Meal. This annual event sees vegetables and fruit donated by the gardeners of Reading cooked into a delicious meal by the students at Reading College and served free at a wonderful community event to celebrate local food. In 2018, the event will be held in Forbury Gardens on Saturday 29th September. Read more on the Town Meal website.

For our campaign, we are going to focus on a small range of easy-to-grow vegetables. We'll supply free tubers, set, seeds or seedlings to anyone who wants to grow for the Town Meal. We'll send out regular emails with tips and advice during the year. And at the end of the season we hope that there will be lots of lovely food to contribute to the Town Meal.
