The Grown In Totnes Toolkit is packed with advice, checklists case studies and links to more information and organisations. It has been designed for growers, millers, bakers, food processors, retailers, researchers and other ‘seekers of nutritional food’.

The online guide includes chapters on:

  • Planning your enterprise
  • Growing the crops
  • Processing facilities
  • Harvesting
  • Crop care
  • Processing the crops
  • Pricing and delivery
  • Marketing

The site has been launched with case studies of the Transition Town Totnes projects Grown in Totnes and Dartington Mill to help inform and inspire other people. The organisers invite more people running local crop growing, processing and marketing enterprises to send in their own case studies to add to the site.

Webinar

Farmers, millers, bakers and others who might be interested in using the toolkit are invited to an online workshop about using the toolkit on Tuesday 24 November 2020, 4-6pm GMT.

NB registration closes on 23 November.
