Hull Veg City 2019-20 programme
Veg Cities Hull exists to increase the growing, cooking and eating of vegetables in Hull. We work with organisations such as Hull Healthy Lifestyles, Hull KR Community Trust, Veg Power UK and many others. We are doing this by organising events, challenges and promotions that inspire and motivate people to get involved as individuals or as a community in the growing, cooking and eating more VEG!
We aim to make things as fun and enjoyable as possible. Would you like to get involved? If so, read below, or get in touch with us at email@example.com
