Audacious Veg is a bold new social enterprise creating training & employment opportunities for local young adults through urban agriculture.
Its socially responsible business model addresses the need for skills and employment in north-east London, while meeting a growing demand for local food. Young adult trainees at Audacious Veg will grow delicious and sustainably produced food for London restaurants, while earning London Living Wage and accessing skills that will help them find employment after the traineeship.
Based in Hainault the enterprise is looking for volunteers to help grow food alongside young adult trainees and refugees. It’s also looking for mentors to support the young adults in career planning and job hunting. For more info, check out audaciousveg.org/support-us/volunteer.
Hoping that Natalie Szarek will be able to join the first Hainault business networking event on 2nd February organised by another Hainault business start-up. And we’ll be adding the project to our Green business directory.
