Harlow Grows

Harlow Grows is a ‘grow your own’ project that is being delivered by the council in partnership with Rainbow Services, Herts and Essex Community Farm and Changing Lives in Harlow. 

Growing your own produce can be fun, help you stay healthy, reduce stress by connecting with nature and give you a sense of achievement.

You can also join in with Facebook Live videos by Herts and Essex Community Farm and connect with the farm community for helpful tips and advice via the farm’s social media channels.  You can get more information on Herts and Essex Community Farm's Facebook page

You can request a Harlow Grows pack, which will contain a selection of vegetables to grow, free of charge.

You can request an outdoor pack, to be grown in your garden or indoor pack if you don't have an outdoor space. 

Unfortunately, our limited number of packs have now all gone. We will update this page with more information on future schemes.
