In collaboration with The Kent Video Company, this 10-part video series was created to showcase the projects funded by grants provided by Growing Green and promote some of the variety of Kent-based businesses who are leading the way in terms of sustainability and net-zero goals in hospitality and agriculture. 

From reducing water by 90% in distilling, reducing food waste in fruit crisp production and recycling bottle schemes, delivered by Growing Kent and Medway, the pilot scheme developed a bespoke training package and provided funding opportunities to help businesses operating across the agri-food sector to reduce their carbon emissions.

Filmed on location across Kent, we researched, interviewed and filmed an eclectic mix of inspiring and trailblazing Kent-based businesses such as Pleasant Land Distillery (Ashford), Nim's Crisps (Sittingbourne), Ro-Gro (Sittingbourne), JIB Cannon and Son (Tonbridge), Roughway Farm Online (Tonbridge) and Zak's Kombucha (Wye) to create an engaging and inspiring digital series for social media and website usage. 

Growing Green was funded by the UK Government and Growing Green partners through the UK Community Renewal Fund.
