A Place to Grow

A Place To Grow is a free to use sustainable Community Garden with the purpose to support positive Health and Wellbeing. We encourage people to learn new things by producing and eating healthy food, being physically active, getting involved in the community and meeting new people in a friendly, informal and safe environment.

The site is aimed at supporting and encouraging those living with or affected by a health condition to enjoy the outdoors.
