Shoots of Recovery is a new social enterprise providing support, training, employment and social integration via food production in Birmingham.

We supply fresh, top-quality salad leaves to local businesses and food-lovers across Birmingham and the West Midlands, at the same time as helping some of the most vulnerable people in our community to rebuild their lives.


Our Mission

Our salad leaves are grown by people recovering from a history of substance misuse, poor mental health or offending backgrounds.

Through our food growing program, they are better able to maintain their sobriety and address offending behaviour, enjoying valuable social contact and access to further education and training.

Learn more about why we want to do this in Our Story So Far.


What next?

We have a piece of land in East Birmingham that we are in the process of developing, and we are working closely with local agencies who can refer vulnerable people into our food growing program.

To turn our vision into a reality, all we need are the funds to purchase equipment so that we can get growing as soon as possible.

Over the coming weeks we will be launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise these funds. We have some great incentives for donors, whatever you can afford to give.
