Storeroom2010’s Cowes Men’s Shed has teamed up with the Green Island Veg Economy Facebook group to give a selection of tables of varying sizes, made by the members of the shed, to those wanting to share their produce this Spring.
Through the GIVE Facebook group, excess plants and seedlings are made available to Islanders wishing to help others by sharing their own locally grown produce. It is a place to share knowledge, tips advice and photos.
The end result is the hope that hundreds, if not thousands, of people living on the Isle of Wight will grow their own produce and share surplus crops by leaving them in their front garden for others to collect for free.
Many new gardeners have been encouraged by both Cowes Men’s Shed and GIVE to engage in gardening during the pandemic, appreciating the therapeutic qualities it offers.
