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.
Everyone running a garden can register their garden on www.bigdig.org.uk to promote their garden locally to volunteers and other organisations, use the online Harvest-ometer and all the other functions and take part in The Big Dig Day on 27 April. Registration is free and takes less than five minutes.
Oasis run over 50 schools and serve around 30,000 children across the UK. In addition, community hubs bring together volunteers, activists and professionals in 36 different locations generating further impact. Oasis Hub Waterloo, located in the London Borough of Lambeth, is trialing new approaches to make good food and fresh vegetables more accessible to the school community.
