“Food security occurs when all people are able to access enough safe and nutritious food to meet their requirements for a healthy life, in ways the planet can sustain into the future.”

Custom Food Lab CIC, now known as The Locavore Growing Project, is a network of community gardeners and growers who are passionate about food and the future – 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 imagine a food system outside of capitalism. We want to eliminate food insecurity through community gardening, allowing people access to local, nutritious and free produce.

Our long term community food growing project The Locavore Growing Project is situated at Martello Primary School. And more recently, we’ve secured a new growing space in Pent Farm in which we plan to build a Community Supported Agricultural scheme (CSA).

Operating mainly from Folkestone, Kent, we began in 2018 as Custom Folkestone C.I.C., a restaurant, garden and art space. Find out about Custom Folkestone here.
