Our community of gardeners

We’re a community of citizen gardeners, not a community garden. Everyone that visited our Spring plant sale today left with something new: in their brains, for their gardens, and some of them for their mouths. Plants, compost, food. My favourite was our youngest visitor munching on Taunton Deane kale leaves. I’m excited for many more…

I’m going to grow more

We are through round one and two of seed sowing for 2023. That’s over 800 plants started so far and we’ve not got to the big sowing list yet. And you know what? I’m thinking to grow even more than first planned! Is less more? The spreadsheets suggest we will grow less plants this year.…

About us

Earthed Up! is a not-for-profit workers co-operative in Belper, Derbyshire.

We grow and sell edible and useful plants and their seeds – vegetables, fruit and herbs, preferring perennials. We grow without harmful chemicals, peat free, off-grid.

As part of our Soil Health Range, we sell and deliver quality peat free composts from Dalefoot and Melcourt SylvaGrow. New for 2023, we also offer biochar and plant feed.

We share skills with our community through courses and an education programme. Soil Health Clubs launch in 2023, thanks to funding help from our crowd.
