Let’s Grow Together
The benefits of growing your own food are many, from improved mental health to reduced carbon footprints and saving money to meeting new friends. Food is one thing that unites us all and improving our relationship with food can be transformative.
In 2021 the Council agreed a Food Growing Strategy called Let’s Grow Together, that recognises the importance of sustainable community food growing and the many benefits gained by doing so.

Community allotments can provide a number of benefits to individuals, such as the opportunity to produce a wide range of relatively inexpensive healthy vegetables, whilst at the same time providing physical exercise in the outdoors. It can create the opportunity to make new friends and provide the chance to socialise with others who enjoy a similar rewarding pastime.
The benefits to having your own allotment:
- Pleasure of seeing what you sow grow to maturity
- Exercise and a healthier lifestyle
- Fresh air, peace and quiet
- Opportunity to meet new friends
- Eat your own fresh and organic produce
Council has one an allotment site in Bangor. To join the waiting list please contact us on 0300 013 3333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
