• Example Veg Box

    This is an example of our £8 veg box.  We use as much of our own and locally grown veg as possible.  We source veg from other local farmers and suppliers.  Our veg is very fresh as the time from farm to you is a less than the supermarkets can do.

  • Lottery Awards
  • Bee and Flower

    We know the value of wildlife and diversity.  Where ever possible we plant extra crops to help the pollinators.  Often we have our own hive of bees or offer a place for local bee keeper.  Bees are a massive help in the garden.

  • Back Field

    The back field where grown most of our out door crops.  We grow food to an organic standard i.e we don’t spray or use artificial fertilisers or pest controls.

  • Community days and working with local groups is part of what we do.  Here we see the Grimsby Morris Men doing a traditional wassail dance as part of our apple day.

  • Our base is in the Vanson Centre in Bradley. This site needs constant work throughout the year and we are only able to maintain this beautiful community asset with a huge amount of support from our local community and our very hardworking staff and volunteers

  • Poly 4 Reskin

    The addition of a fourth poly tunnel has increased our capacity to grow.  This a thanks to a National Lottery Local Food grant.

  • View across the Site

    This view shows the Heritage Orchard where we have over 45 different apple tree varieties and a few other fruit trees.  Many are old varieties not grown by commercial growers so rarely seen in shops.

  • Hanging Baskets

    We grow and sell lots of flowers as well as vegetables.  You can call on site and buy plants for most of the year. Please do pay us a visit.

About Us

Welcome to the Green Futures website, we are a community business working with people of all ages in the Greater Grimsby area to create a sustainable, green future for us all.

Together we are able to grow food for the local community and supply veg boxes, improve our environment, create new jobs, and enhance everyone’s quality of life.

We believe in cultivating more than just plants! We want to grow trust, creativity, honesty, respect and mutual support as we build on the foundations of the past to create an exciting future.

We are working with a number of community partners to achieve these goals.

Green Futures is a social enterprise which believes that enabling people to realise their full potential is the key to community regeneration. This belief is being worked out in the development of The Vanson Centre for Sustainable Living, in the Bradley area of Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire.

We are a social enterprise and rely entirely on funds we can raise and generate to continue our good work.  Many people support our work by buying our produce and services.  We also are happy to take donations.  Please use the link below if you would like to donate, don’t forget to tell pay pal it is gift as it reduces the pay pal fees.

Visit the Landscape

The site at Bradley is three and half acres and is well worth a visit.   As well as producing food we also use the landscape to grow lots of plants.  We love to have visitors on site to share in one of the hidden gems of North East Lincolnshire, tucked away down a lane, you could easily miss, on the way into Bradley village.

 

 

Our Veg Boxes

Fresh locally sourced veg delivered right to your door or place of work, weekly or fortnightly.  We pride ourselves on supplying quality produce and make every effort to support local growers and supply chains.  We are often cheaper than the leading supermarkets and we aim to reduce food miles.

Get Involved!

As a community project we rely on our lovely volunteers.  Growing stuff is hands on work and great fun.  If anyone in is interested in getting involved please get in touch or come and visit the site.  We have people that give from a couple of hours a month to a day a week.  We are very flexible and would love to hear from you.
