GIY is a global movement of people who grow their own food.
Our big idea? When people grow their own they gain a deeper understanding of food called ‘food empathy’ which acts as a lever to a healthier lifestyle.
There are 50,000 people involved online and in the community, supported by the GIY foundation, which runs campaigns and events to inspire and support people to grow their own.
Our online shop is crammed with great value products that we will deliver direct to your veggie patch. By buying from us you are also helping us to make home-grown food the norm. GIY is a registered charity (CHY 18290).
