Squash is a creative food enterprise rooted in Liverpool 8 since 2007, grown and lead by a diverse group of local people, committed to participatory social change. With backgrounds in cooking, horticulture, visual arts, film-making, performance and architecture, our practice is bold, curious, seasonal, passionate and unusual.

We bring culture and community together in ways previously unimaginable. To grow great places, people and food, we are reclaiming food production via food growing, cooking and culinary craft skills. From mass cook ups to full blown seed and food gardens, a community-designed building with a community café and ingredients-based shop, a four-season arts festival (Food for Real) and a 100 year street plan we explore new ways for our neighbourhood to flourish.
