Get Growing – iphone app
Get Growing is a fantastic new iphone app, which helps you calculate how much food you could be growing in your garden or on your balcony – and works out the amount of money and food miles that you could save! Developed by BTCV, use it as inspiration for getting out there and start growing some of your own fruit and veg! It’s not too late to plant some salad seeds for harvesting this year, or you could be enthused to take the time to plan and prepare your growing area for next year.
Growing your own food is a great way to help reduce your impact on the environment and combat climate change. It’s also fun and good for your health – you can give up that gym membership when you’re out in the garden growing your own food!
Already grow your own food? Download the app and work out how much money and carbon you’ve been saving by doing so.
