Grow-It-Yourself, in partnership with Healthy Ireland and Libraries Ireland, have launched Grow It Forward, an initiative that plans to give away 50,000 free food growing kits.
Budding GIYers are invited to claim a Grow It Forward pack at giy.ie/growitforward or by contacting carrick library at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each food growing pack includes seeds for beetroot, carrots, salad leaves, peas and tomatoes along with a guide to help grow them and a postcard and gift tags to help share them.
The “Keep Well” campaign was launched on 29 October 2020, and aims to support people and communities to mind their physical and mental health over the coming months.
The five key messages in the #KeepWell campaign are:
- Keeping active
- Staying connected
- Switching off and getting creative
- Eating well
- Minding your mood
