Grow Some Share Some sessions

 

Grow Some Share Some is our drop-in programme that offers the opportunity to gain experience of growing fruit and veg, with the purpose of sharing harvests with friends and family, and to grow young plants to give free to local primary schools and community support groups.

 

You can come to sessions whenever you feel the need, and aren't obliged to attend regularly. Simply choose which day suits you.
 


Who is the programme for? 

 

Grow Some Share Some is aimed at adults experiencing anxiety, depression, stress or isolation, and provides an opportunity to reconnect with nature in a friendly and supportive environment.  

 

Our sites have a mixture of outdoor growing space and indoor growing space in polytunnels, greenhouses and a 'bubble dome' where you will be able grow and harvest crops, whatever the weather. The programme provides you with the opportunity to grow fruit, veg, flowers and herbs & also to embrace the environment through guided walks, creative projects and contact with nature.

 

Whether you are an experienced gardener looking to pass on your skills or just know how good nature makes you feel but no outdoor space, this programme allows you to work at your own pace in an inclusive and calming space.
