Welcome to Redacre Growing Project

Redacre Growing Project in Mytholmroyd, Hebden Bridge is a real "growing community" providing individual plots, communal resources, a venue for workshops and community events and a social space for people to meet and share knowledge.

Founded in 2009 Redacre transformed a derelict former landfill site into a productive, community based local food initiative and growing space.

We have allotment plots, raised beds, polytunnel spaces, a bee apiary, chickens and a communal Roundhouse which we use as an events space and community space.

As well as providing space for local people to grow their own food, Redacre uses local land for recreational benefit, encouraging sustainability and adding to the sense of place in the community for all.
