About the Project
Garden will be open for 2 sessions a week & one-off days. Also youth clubs, toddler groups, addiction groups & over 50’s lunch clubs will use the area. We will target specific vulnerable, isolated, disempowered groups/people where Cre8 has an existing high reputation. Preparing/sharing food after each session will encourage healthy eating, social interaction & greater understanding of one another.
