Welcome to GIY. The health of our people and our planet are the most pressing global issues, but there is an intention/action gap and people feel overwhelmed to the point of inaction. Food is an area where people can take actions that have immediate sustainability and health impacts, and growing some of your own food is a simple, compelling way to develop a deeper understanding and connection with food which in GIY we call ‘food empathy’. Globally, the network of GIY groups and projects are making a huge difference in their communities. Why not join or start a GIY group or project in your community, school or workplace?
