Growing food, friendships and community

Whatever our age or ability, the consistency and plain good fun of regular time spent exploring and enjoying familiar outdoor local spaces offers a wonderful chance to discover, learn, wind down, and simply ‘be’.

Growing Together started quietly in 2015 and today, its raised beds and polytunnel areas are maintained by volunteers and used by school groups, students, teachers and adults. We were delighted to have so many local families and individuals adopting a space to ‘grow their own’ during the lockdowns when we were no longer able to grow together.

Now that we can grow together again, why not come along and volunteer with our Community Growing Project when you have some free time. We host regular volunteer work parties on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 9am to 12pm. These are great opportunities to make friends, have fun and grow… and did we mention, there is always cake! Prefer to pop in when things are a little quieter?, then the weekdays are for you. The polytunnel is open from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday and there are always plenty of jobs, just remember to mark them as done on the whiteboard.

All volunteers must read our Volunteer Handbook and Risk Assessment (click here for policies) and fill in a personal information sheet before volunteering.
