Grow Well, Feel Well

2019 dates to be confirmed soon!

Join us for an evening of workshops, talks and networking. Learn more about food growing and health, and get up to speed on the fast moving world of social prescribing. Organised in partnership with Growing Health, and the Women’s Environmental Network, our summer event is for growers, community organisers, support workers and anyone interested in the links between urban food growing and health.

There will also be time to meet other growers and enjoy light refreshments in the garden.
