Down to Earth Stroud support people in growing and harvesting their own fruit and vegetables. Our aim is to increase access to, and availability of fresh, nutritious and healthy food and encourage reconnection with the land.
We provide a range of services including gardening and we run several community projects across Gloucestershire.
