The Good Mud Growing Project is based near Widemouth Bay, Bude in Cornwall and offers an outdoor space to:
GROW – veg, fruit and plants as naturally and sustainably as possible. We aim for a variety of produce of a high quality, not forgetting our love of odd shapes and sizes. The benefits of the outdoors and nature are immense for our wellbeing.
LEARN – as much as we can in the most fun way! We’re trying to educate ourselves and others. The beauty of growing is that there are so many ways of doing it so we’re keen to have everyone’s input. We want to encourage anyone and everyone, especially our children, to get outdoors and grow a bit at home to have their own free food.
EAT – fresh, healthy and tasty food. Shared lunches, cooked by our community chef, Fran, the children or ourselves, are a very common theme!
We focus on natural, sustainable growing methods to create an outstanding biodiverse environment to visit and work in.
It’s about the food so look out for one of our chef demonstrations. Our volunteers take a share of the harvest and we supply surplus food to community groups such as Bude Food Bank as a way of spreading the love of fresh produce.
If you like the sound of what we’re doing please get in touch, come and visit, lend a hand, make some new friends.
