We Grow_edited_edited.jpg

We Grow is our latest community project.
 

During the past 2 years our green spaces have become more important than ever before.

By using outdoor areas within our daily lives, we have seen benefits to both physical and mental health.

That's why RCV UK in partnership with other local organisations want to encourage more engagement with our green spaces.

 

We aim to improve community engagement even further by involving CCBC, schools, colleges and other groups to improve responsibility, protect our green spaces and increase their use.

We have secured an allotment just off Manor Way where our super volunteers have already started planting and growing.

 

We will be maintaining the spaces with litter picks, planting, pruning and also schedule a variety of events, wellbeing walks, fun runs and social activities.

The produce from our allotment will be donated to the We Connect Pantry to help reduce waste and further reduce our environmental footprint.

 

Grown by the community for the community. What could be better?

It will be accessible for all abilities and there will be something for everyone.

If you work with an organisation that would like to have their own raised bed to plant and look after please get in touch.

Whether you’d like to be a part of the We Grow committee, help with the manual side of things or just enjoy the events, get in touch with us through the contacts page.
