About this cause
We are an environmental charity that aims to improve the health and wellbeing of local people. We recycle paint and sell it at affordable prices for everyone to use, which reduces landfill. We have community gardens, with a team of local volunteers growing fruit and vegetables organically for sale. We keep bees and we work with primary schools with a growing programme for the children.
How this cause brings people in the community together
The project will fund a gardener who will recruit local volunteers to support people with mental and physical ill health. They will work together to grow and cook fruit and vegetables at the community gardens. This will create mixed teams, all working together enjoying the benefit of being outside and eating healthily. The teams will offer produce for sale from the gardens.
