With practical guidance from our in-house horticulturalists, you will learn new skills, meet people, prepare fruit and vegetable beds, sow and raise seedlings, plant out, pick and harvest what’s grown. Community Gardens are also great places to take time out from the daily stresses of life.
Underpinned by the 5 Ways to Wellbeing, participants gain a sense of achievement, noticing how things grow, keeping active, connecting with each other, learning something new and sharing their experiences.
