Community garden centre
Key objectives & Outcomes
To develop management team’s skills to increase trade and reinvest profit into even more education and training opportunities for the community
Trading for the benefit of the local community
The garden centre sells plants and products from their shop. They also let out spaces, run garden therapy sessions, and provide green design services to local businesses. Profits are reinvested into running community activities.
Improving social inclusion
Much more than a shop, the centre has community gardening sessions for people with severe physical and learning disabilities and dedicated allotments for user groups like the Deaf Centre.
