Update from Eat & Grow Local campaign

Brand New Forest is proud to support and sponsor the New Forest Food Challenge. A very busy 2014 saw them work in partnership with a number of local groups including Milford Food Week, Minstead Study Centre, St Thomas Church Lymington and New Forest Marque members either helping, supporting or running 17 local events including seed swaps, apple days, children’s seed planting, smoothie making and Ready Steady Cook local using a kitchen theatre!

Community gardens were set up in New Milton and Minstead Study Centre with support from local schools to encourage more residents to “grow local” and in the autumn, free onion and garlic sets were given to 12 schools.

2014 also saw the New Forest Food Challenge assist in the development of the local food trail leaflets along with the help from Brand New Forest, the New Forest National Park Authority and New Forest Marque. Find out more about the Food Trail Leaflets.
