Growing opportunities appeal

A SCARBOROUGH-BASED project is appealing for people who would like to have a go at food-growing to take part in the scheme.

Growing Opportunities, which is funded by the Big Lottery Fund Local Food Programme and North Yorkshire County Council, has matched gardens and areas of land of various sizes have been matched with food-growers all over town - and there is still land available that is waiting to be matched.

Organisers urgently need people with food-growing skills to volunteer an hour or two a week to mentor food-growers.
