What is VEG CITIES?

We call on cities and other local areas to coordinate activity and action. From councils to schools, from food growing enterprises to workplaces, we all have a role to play to increase the availability and consumption of vegetables locally.

VEG CITIES is a feature campaign of Sustainable Food Cities, led by food and farming charity Sustain in partnership with the wider Peas Please initiative.

Get your garden ready for the Big Dig

The Big Dig Day is taking place on Saturday 27 April 2019 across the UK and Sustain is inviting edible gardens to open their doors to volunteers and the community to mark the start of the growing season, promote their gardens and encourage people to volunteer.

Edinburgh becomes a Veg City

Edinburgh kicked off a city-wide campaign to promote vegetable consumption coinciding with the launch of the Veg Power advertising campaign. The campaign will be run by members of the Edible Edinburgh partnership, including the City of Edinburgh Council, NHS Lothian, Scotland Food & Drink, Nourish Scotland, as well as local businesses and community groups.
