Are you interested in…
Whatever your scale, location or experience, your food production can benefit, and you can make a difference.
Help us address science challenges and data gaps, from creating soil maps to enhancing climate prediction models and earth observation from satellites.
Together we will build evidence to support policy change towards sustainable land practices.
…then GROW is looking for you
A European-wide project engaging thousands of growers, scientists and others passionate about the land. We will discover together, using simple tools to better manage soil and grow food, while contributing to vital scientific environmental monitoring.
How does it work?
Discover amazing people
Connect with other growers, scientists and others passionate about the land and access information from world leaders in growing.
Experiment and share stories
Learn how to test and validate, growing and earth monitoring methods, through citizen science experiments. Share your new growing stories with the community.
Grow better soil
Share and use land, soil, crop, planting and water resource information that will help you (and us all together) make decisions about smart and sustainable user of land and soil to produce food.
The latest GROW happenings
We’ll share stories and more about the project, including lessons learned and data insights.
Where the idea came from, and what we hope to do together? Behind GROW is a community of people who share an interest in sustainable food growing, soil, climate, open data, accessible technology, and the incredible things that can happen when people come together to make change.
