Grow Your Own

Transform any space, big or tiny, into a bountiful garden. From beginner to advanced techniques, we’ll show you how to grow your own delicious food. Take a look at our guides now!

The People’s Food and Farming Alliance (PFFA) will commit to assisting all of us in the quickest, healthiest and most cost-effective way for many of us to grow some of our own produce. This will include not just vegetation, but also poultry and livestock, herbs for medicinal purposes, and foraging. These steps can be taken by virtually all of us and we can help guide everyone, even those of us in financial hardship.

Planning for the Seasons

Spring is the time to plant peas.

To grow our own food, within all possible capacity, is our own responsibility, and The PFFA aims to support everyone in growing or rearing their own food, through practical guidance and education.

We will introduce a variety of approaches, a guide to what to plant, and when, and when to harvest that produce.

We will introduce blogs and videos to support many aspects of growing, harvesting, storing and cooking foods & herbs, and welcome guest bloggers to join the fun!

Fancy learning to make cheese or butter? How to brew your own beer? How to grow your own chicken feed? As we go, we will grow, and we will bring a full range of educational resources to support us all as we learn and grow in confidence and knowledge.
