A Place to Grow

A Place To Grow is a sustainable Community Garden with the purpose to support positive mental health and wellbeing. This is achieved by encouraging 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 anyone who works or lives in the district and wants to improve their mental health and wellbeing. You may have a long term health condition, learning disability, recently bereaved, feeling isolated and lonely or want to get more active.
