The Big Dig is an online platform to support food growing in the UK, run by
Sustain. The Big Dig is taking place on Saturday 27 April 2019 across the UK.
We are inviting edible gardens to open their doors to volunteers and the
community to mark the start of the growing season, promote their gardens and
encourage people to volunteer. The Big Dig started in London 8 years ago and over the years a
few more cities and local areas got involved. This year we would love to get
Veg Cities and SFC members involved and a lot more cities and local areas
participating in the Big Dig.
The webinar will cover the history of the Big Dig and how you
can get involved. It will go over the support available for local areas and
gardens including digital materials and the web mapping tool. You will hear
from a food growing network in Manchester about their experience of mapping
growing spaces in the city and joining the Big Dig.
