Grow Together

Enjoy gardening?

Like to help your community?

Interested in sharing skills, growing and eating?

Grow Together is a volunteer project, created to inspire a love of growing food and flowers and an active lifestyle through gardening, in communities across Rutland.

How does Grow Together work?

Grow Together connects Rutland residents to inspire local people of all ages and abilities to create a community garden-based project and organise events around it. These might be plant swaps, planting events, harvesting, apple pressing, pumpkin celebrations – it really is up to your community to decide! There are also county-wide events such as an annual seed swap and having a presence at community events.

The "Grow Together" project enables people to get out there in the fresh air, be active, meet new people, have fun and feel confident about 'growing their own' – in 2020 and beyond.

Could you be a Grow Together volunteer gardener?

Our volunteer gardeners will have a keen interest for gardening, the enthusiasm and desire to share their knowledge, and the confidence to bring a community together through communications and events and lead them in gardening.

In return for their time and commitment, each volunteer will benefit from professional horticultural training, project support, and event resources to help them in their role. They will also be part of a thriving group of like-minded volunteers who will get together and support each other throughout the project.
