A Place to Grow

A Place To Grow service will remain open with the new national lockdown restriction measures that come into force on 05 November. A Place To Grow supports people living with mental health, learning disabilities and long term health conditions.

Under the government guidance, support groups for people in these categories can continue to run up to a maximum of 15 people. The community garden, based in Enderby, with over an acre of land, cottage garden, mini orchard, pond and veg plots, there is plenty to explore and enjoy safely whilst adhering to social distancing rules. There is a registration system in place and full Covid risk assessment.

A Place To Grow is 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.
