Planting Up MK founding member and volunteer, Kirsty Forshaw, reflects on her experience of the impact that our community gardens and food growing are having on us and how that is defining our “why”…
It is our mission to encourage, educate and empower people to create local community gardens that connect us to the natural world and each other in growing food, enhancing wildlife habitats, and cultivating our communities for positive mental health and wellbeing.

Taking what we have learned from creating a community forest garden at Westbury Arts Centre, we are supporting local communities to develop their own community gardens across Milton Keynes.
GET INVOLVED FOR BETTER HEALTH
We believe that we are all responsible for protecting the environment and creating more resilient local communities, which we can do by supporting biodiversity, reducing food inequalities, and maintaining good health and wellbeing by better connecting with nature and each other.
