Welcome to The Locavore Growing Project, a Community Interest Company (CIC).

We operate under the name ‘Custom Food Lab’. We’re a community of growers who are passionate about food – where food comes from, how it’s grown, it’s potential to tell a story, to connect people to each other, to nature, to heritage, to discover long lost sustainable practices, to reimagine a food system outside of capitalism.

We operate through growing, cooking and sharing food. We want to eliminate food insecurity through community gardening, allowing people access to local gorwn, nutritious and free produce.

Together, we’re building a network of CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture Schemes) that re-connect our community with it’s land.
