The Big Dig is all about getting people involved in their local community garden.

We hold national events to promote edible gardens and encourage people to volunteer.

What is the aim of The Big Dig?

The Big Dig was funded through the Social Action Fund from March 2012 to September 2013. In that time over 8,000 new volunteers got involved in their local community garden.

Our Big Dig city partners are continuing to develop this work. Contact them to find out more about what is happening in your area.

If you are a garden that is outside of the current Big Dig towns or cities but would like to be involved in the future then please or on 020 7065 0902.
