Growing Beans for Year-round Food

Beans are easy to grow, easy to cook, delicious, nourishing and beneficial for us and the planet.

Susan Young, author of 'Growing Beans: A diet for healthy people and planet' shares a range of beans she grows to eat fresh from the plant and to dry for year-round tasty meals.

From the tiny 'Hungarian rice' bean, which grows on small plants that can grow in pots on the patio, to the gobstopper Polish bean, 'Piekny Jas', which grows on tall climbing vines that Susan incorporates with trailing squash plants.

Growing your own beans not only helps you build healthy soil in your garden, it also provides you with a nutrient-rich diet. Beans can play a role in reducing the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer – they are good sources of protein, fibre, folate, iron and potassium – and they can reduce your carbon footprint and food miles as well!

Beans offer year-round nutritious meals, and dried beans can be the star of the show with their fabulous diversity of flavours, colours and textures.
