Developed as part of the Growing a Million Meals for London campaign the document is split into six sections –

  1. Managing your growing sites
  2. Designing your growing space
  3. Crop rotation and useful growing techniques
  4. Looking after your soil
  5. Crop selection and protection for healthy yields
  6. Keeping costs down. 

It has been designed to be used alongside the Harvest-ometer, Capital Growth’s online tool to help record your yield and has simple assessment questions so you can review your project and identify areas for improvement.
