Have your say

I’m from Food Portsmouth, set up to develop a positive and sustainable food culture and develop green urban spaces across the city to grow more local food.

We have built an urban city garden at Treadgolds, originally a 19th century dockyard ironmongers in Portsea, to be used by local community groups. We are looking for volunteers to help maintain and grow the project.

We’d like schools, parents and toddlers and isolated groups to grow and learn about where food comes from. We also collect surplus food from supermarkets with FoodCycle, and turn it into community meals twice a week.

Fresh food left over from cooking meals is turned into Pompey Preserves at our Friday morning jammin’ sessions, and sold monthly at Tesco Fratton. So, whether or not you have green fingers, enjoy cooking or jamming, if you’d like find out more, visit
