GIY support people around the world to live happier, healthier and more sustainable lives by growing some of their own food. GIYers develop what we call food empathy – a deeper connection with food and respect for the people and planet that put it on our tables. GIY have a mission to inspire and enable a global movement of food growers whose collective actions will help to create a more fair, resilient and sustainable food system.
Everything GIY do is guided by five principles, inspired by the simple but powerful act of growing food:
- Eat more plants
- End food waste
- Support small producers
- Stop food pollution
- Connect with nature
