Hi All,
I'm hoping to start a gardening group for our Social Support members. I am today chasing some government guidelines as I am lost in searching the internet for what I require.
We plan to have a vegetable garden but my question is, is our Cook then able to use the produce to feed members as its not a registered supplier. If not are the members able to benefit by taking this produce home . Does any body know the do's and don'ts and where I can find this information for my report.
Thank you,
And congratulations to all for your input on an excellent helpful website.

Hi Annmaree
I think your best option is to contact a look of garden club in your area for this information
I am not from your area so I really don’t know what to tell you about your areas requirements
I know that we could not use the vegetables that the residents grew
You may want to think about growing alternative plants
Here are some articles and golden Carers to read
