Swansea 'Growing Spaces' Green Map
The Growing Spaces map is the first map we've made that only comes in PDF format - no copies were printed. We are looking to produce a printable pdf of the map that will contain other information as well, but that will be something for the future.
The map highlights organisations around Swansea that are to do with local production of food in some way or another and are available for people to join in with - whether through buying their produce, through direct engagement in the growing process or through the willingness to share knowledge and skills to encourage others.
Growing your own food has many benefits for the grower through cheaper food, good exercise and knowing exactly what chemicals (if any) have been used. It also benefits the wider environment by helping to reduce 'food miles' that contribute to global warming.
