Who are we and what are we doing?

Grow, Make, Mend is a journey of one family in the UK.

We want to live better, in this busy world that we find ourselves in. Cooking more from scratch? Tick. Use less resource, less plastic, generate less waste? Definitely.

And underpinning all of that - turning our suburban lawn into a productive food garden.

Being our patron

We want you - our patron - to come on our journey with us. You can share in our victories. See our plans unfold through our exclusive behind the scenes access and contribute with suggestions. Share your experiences and advice with us. Ask us anything about this journey. We want you to feel inspired and rewarded by your patronage. We want you to feel part of our community.

In exchange your patronage will contribute to the costs of our food garden, both set-up and ongoing maintenance. Chickens need feeding. Greenhouses aren't free.

Aren't we going to do these things anyway, with or without your patronage? We're going to give it a very good go, but the reality is that without crowdfunding, our journey is going to be much slower. Your funding will be set aside to be spent only on the garden project and scaling our reward programme. Your funding will let us achieve a different scale and pace to our work.  

And we aren't going to forget about you! As our patron funding grows month on month we will invest in our rewards so that you can increasingly reap the benefits of your patronage, no matter what tier you choose to subscribe to. 

Come with us on our journey

Live vicariously and garden by proxy, or be inspired and share back. You choose.

Thank you for being here.
