A citizens’ observatory for growers, researchers and
decision makers.

Do you grow your own food? Have an allotment? Own a small farm? Are you involved in a community or school garden?

Are you taking practical steps to regenerate the soil for future generations? GROW provides an opportunity to develop and share your knowledge and skills.

I am currently putting together a database of permaculture farms and smallholders as part of GROW, an EU funded soils project: This database will be used to recruit famers for the GROW project and to map permaculture farms in Europe. So far I have identified over 200 farms, mainly in northern Europe. I am now trying to find contacts in every European country.


Many thanks for your help and all best wishes,
