About us

The Big Dig is an online platform to support food growing in the UK, run by Sustain. The Big Dig Network is all about getting people involved in their local community garden.

You can register your garden to the Big Dig Network for free to promote your garden locally to volunteers and other organisations, use the online Harvest-ometer and all the other functions and take part in co-ordinated events such as The Big Dig Day.

We need your help to make the Big Dig Network of gardens reach every city and local areas in the UK!

If you are running an edible garden or if you are passionate about food growing and would like to volunteer at a garden near you take action now.
