In Harmony Food Revolution (IHFR) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) aiming to support people in challenging circumstances and encourage and inspire people from all walks of life to grow food naturally and make healthier lifestyle choices.

At our Growing in Harmony site at Kirkleatham in Redcar our work is focused around organic growing, with educational aspects including opportunities to learn horticulture, woodworking, sustainability and small animal care. In this therapeutic environment volunteers, attendees and visitors experience many benefits to their physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Growing in Harmony offers the opportunity to experience a true sense of community in a nurturing and healing natural environment

One of our aims is to help people develop community growing projects in their local areas. We can offer training and support with this from our site at Kirkleatham. We also have outreach projects, such as the community garden at Skinningrove where, in partnership with Middlesbrough Football Club Foundation we have supported local people in renovating a neglected garden and provide ongoing support and training in how to maintain it.

On Halloween weekend we'll be doing a 14km sponsored walk around the Guisborough 3 peaks, Roseberry Topping, Highcliffe and the hanging stone. We'd really appreciate your support in raising funds and awareness for our organic growing project.

Update: Our walk was a great success! We went ahead despite some challenging weather and you can see our video updates as the walk progressed here. We're leaving the fundraiser open until mid November so if you would like to you can still contribute using the link above.

History

IHFR started trading in 2017 and was initially developed as a partner organisation to Teesside Homeless Action Group (THAG). As well as helping people with housing difficulties to make healthier lifestyle choices we began working increasingly people with other challenges including loneliness and social isolation, drug and alcohol abuse, long term unemployment and mental health issues.

With an ethos of inclusivity we encourage people to be the best version of themselves regardless of external circumstance. Helping people find meaning, purpose and independence has always been central to our work.

We have twenty years experience of growing, cooking and eating our own food with people from all backgrounds and providing education on the benefits of locally grown seasonal food.
