Started in 2008, Grow is a small charity working with communities to create community gardens in their area. It’s as much about growing community as it is about growing our food and flowers! To date we have set up two community gardens; one in an urban setting in the Waterworks Park in North Belfast and one in a rural setting at Helens Bay Organic Farm.
There are many ways for you to get involved;
- Get involved in a community garden
- Join us at community events in the garden
- Cooking and healthy eating workshops
- Action days.
