Rooted in Hull was founded in 2014. It is an agriculture project currently being developed on St Peter’s Street in the centre of Hull. Working in partnership with local business, Rooted in Hull has taken over a vacant development site transforming it into a community space and micro enterprise hub based around food, farming and the environment. Rooted in Hull is unique as it uses mobile infrastructure allowing it to make use of vacant development sites. When required the whole project can be mobilized to another site allowing development to take place. Rooted in Hull works closely with Hull College supporting 14-16 year-old students to deliver real projects in the community. To date, students have converted three shipping containers to create a multipurpose space, shop and catering unit and several raised bed kits. As well as students, Rooted in Hull work with volunteers from all walks for life helping to improve health through food and active participation. Rooted in Hull would like to hold regular events that showcase and celebrate food from different cultures, make friends and increase respect for each other. To enable them to hold these events, they approached the Tribune Trust for a grant. The Trustees were delighted to be able to support the project.
