Growing People is a horticultural social enterprise exploring sustainable methods of growing food within the local community. Our market garden is located at the Urb Farm in the heart of Wolverton, Milton Keynes.

  •  Together with our trainees and volunteers we maintain 18 large growing beds, four polytunnels, greenhouses and an orchard all year round.
  • We grow a wide range of vegetables and fruit using environmentally sensitive techniques, working with the seasons and local climate here in the Southeast. All of our produce is cultivated on site with zero food miles from field to market.
  • Veg Bags can be purchased on the shop section on the website, and collected from the farm. The weekly market is currently closed and will reopen in the spring.  The Urb Farm can be found between 196-198 Windsor Street, Wolverton, MK12 5DR.

“My vision is for a new food economy with more and more of us growing a percentage of our own food, and preferentially purchasing in season and local food from local and sustainable farmers. This future food system will not be identical to those that I remember from my childhood in the ’50s and ’60s, since the world has changed since then. The internet and other related digital innovations including on-line marketing, and the emergence of farmers markets and community supported agriculture, are all expressions of the boundless innovation of humanity. So, let us hope that the farming community will prosper and come to play a more central role in our future food systems. Let the new food revolution flourish and thrive!”

Patrick Holden, British farmer and founder of Sustainable Food Trust
