Come along to the YUMI Garden – get to know new people, grow international produce, learn about gardening – or simply come to enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful space!!
The community garden is an integral part of YUMI’s vision to create an intercultural York, where people from different cultures feel a sense of belonging and empowerment.
The garden is a place where people share their knowledge and recollections of growing food in their own cultures. We grow familiar plants and use them in different ways, and we also try to grow unusual plants from different cultures. We are constantly sharing, learning and growing together.
“YUMI was my saving grace. I moved to the UK from the States to get my masters. The transition was much more difficult than I had anticipated. I was shy and lonely and struggling to find a group of friends. A YUMI member invited me to attend a YUMI get-together with the cooks and it was wonderful. I would have been lost if not for the friends I met volunteering with YUMI” – Brittany, USA
