The GREAT Project

Through our connection with The Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group SW, Feeding Gloucestershire has linked to The GREAT Project. Through the link with the GREAT project we aim to connect community growing projects across the county to support and to knowledge of environmentally friendly growing methods.

The GREAT Project is putting Gloucestershire in the vanguard of the transition to regenerative agriculture.

GREAT stands for Gloucestershire Regenerative Environment and Agriculture Transition. It’s a three-year project, funded by Thirty Percy, to boost the transition to farming methods that restore the soil, water and air. We want to join the dots between farmers, advisors, growers, mentors and their communities to facilitate this change that is so sorely needed for a resilient future for farms, nature and the earth.

We have three core aims: build evidence, facilitate knowledge exchange, and nurture enterprise.
