@ Oakwood Market Garden

We are Passion4Plants, a small regenerative market garden located in Oakwood, Leeds.

You can buy our produce from:

  • Leeds Veg Box - use code ‘p4p’ for a 35% discount on your first veg box!

  • The Fruit Stall in Chapel Allerton - microgreens and a small selection of veg

As at October ‘23 we’ve paused sales until spring ‘24 at:

We provide locally-grown produce to families and businesses within a 5 mile radius of our Oakwood Market Garden site. We are adopting regenerative farming practices: our produce is grown with no artificial fertilisers, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides and we use only peat-free compost. We’re also building soil health and encouraging biodiversity on our land.

In addition to fruit and veg we also stock a small range of plants for the garden and house.

Join us as a member of our ‘Friends of OMG’ group to help take forward our vision for a community owned and led market garden.

What We Produce

We grow a wide variety of root and leafy vegetables , salads, edible flowers, microgreens, chillies, herbs and fruits. Our hens produce a small quantity of eggs.

Our small plant nursery provides a selection of annual and perennial plants, and house plants.

We do not use any non-organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides on our produce or our land.

In addition to growing produce we host several bee hives, and have six gorgeous hens - Lottie, Winnie, Elsie, Mabel, Bonnie and Betty - to provide eggs for our customers.

Regenerative Farming - better than organic!

Regenerative farming is not a new term – or at least not a new practice. In fact the practice is thousands of years old, practiced by indigenous peoples – including those of our own land, but lost over time as property rights became enshrined and enforced in law, and in more recent times as the industrialisation of agriculture has gathered pace.

There are many definitions of regenerative farming, including a set of principles that guide good practice. These are:

  1. Minimise disruption to soil structures: by using no-till cultivation methods, and so encourage the growth of soil micro-organisms and networks of fungus that support plant growth

  2. Using cover crops: to naturally reduce weeds and increase nitrogen

  3. Integrating animals with what’s being grown: to remove weeds from the upper soil and fertilise the soil through their manure

  4. Improve soil biodiversity: by practicing crop rotation, to increase long term soil nutrition and nitrogen fixation

  5. Keep living roots in the soil: to maximise carbon sequestration from the atmosphere, where it exists as carbon dioxide, into the soil; and as a source of nutrition for soil microorganisms

    We think it’s a bit strange that there isn’t this sixth principle, so we’ve added it to our set anyway:

  6. No poisoning of the environment: by not using industrial pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or fertilisers

As well as being a set of principles and practices, regenerative farming is a journey on which we continually learn and experiment and ultimately improve our practice, helping to revert some of the damage that humans have inadvertently wreaked on our planet in the name of growth. We’ve been on this journey for the past five years, and we’re still learning and experimenting.
