Andrew became concerned by the struggles of many families to eat wholesome food and founded Grow Free, a community network that doesn’t just want food to be nutritious, but free.
On the farm, he got to eat fresh food grown with a lot of attention and care. He realised two things: how good food could be, and that the majority of people weren’t aware of its potential. By buying processed and mass-produced food, most people were missing out on a primal connection that’s crucial to good living and health.
He began giving away heirloom vegetable seedlings he’d raised in his backyard, with the hope that as more people began to grow and share, people would become acquainted with each other and with their own health. His act of generosity spread, and people began coming to him not for his seedlings, but to join him in growing and sharing real food.
