The three keywords of the project Growing with Your Food are food, community and environment. 
This project participates in the first Tartu 2024 culture and education programme development process, as a part of "Tartu with Earth" programme line. Projects that successfully complete the process will advance to the official European Capital of Culture programme.


We are what we eat. Food is the first expression of our cultural heritage and our international language. Community gardening has a great potential in cultivating social, ecological and cultural values. 

The planned project's purpose is to grow a generation, who value and prefer local and organic food, create as little food waste as possible and who will create a biodiverse (city) environment. Eating your own food means supporting community gardens and green areas. When growing with your food, you know it.
