ave you ever wanted to grow your own food? Do you
worry that you’re not eating enough fruit and veg or
that your kids don’t know where their food comes
from? Did you know that kids who grow their own food are five times more likely to be healthier eaters. GIY (Grow It Yourself) have been helping people maintain a healthier, happier and more sustainable life since 2008 and their easy to use GROWBox range can help you go from seed to feed in a few simple steps.
With a GROWBox from giy.ie, you can grow 12 different vegetables in 12 weeks. It’s something you can do at home, school, work or in the wider community. The recommended growing area is a 12 square metre plot (about the size of a car parking spot). From that, you can potentially produce up to 50 kilos of veg or €400 worth of your own, delicious, home-grown vegetables.
Growing your own food is for hippies and aristocrats... is not an idea you'll ever hear me agreeing with. It's for absolutely everyone.

GIY came about when an IT salesman called Mick Kelly was shopping in his local supermarket back in 2008. Picking up a 90c bulb of garlic, he noticed it had been on an epic 5,000 mile journey from China to Dublin. That was when he had his ‘garlic bulb’ moment. He immediately set about trying to grow his own garlic in his back garden and GIY was born. Today, Mick enjoys helping people on their own journey to a more sustainable lifestyle with GIY’s courses and GROWBoxes.
