Are you interested in growing your own veg?  

Do you volunteer with a growing project? 

Would you like to start a new growing project? 

 

If so, you’re in the right place. Growing Greenwich wants to connect with and build a network of growing sites across the borough, and support growers to network together to share resources and ideas. 

 

We know the immense benefits of growing, including improving physical and mental wellbeing, community cohesion, tackling social isolation and more, and want all of Greenwich residents to be take advantage of these benefits.   There are already quite a few growing sites in Greenwich that you can visit to get involved with. 

GCDA supports 5 sites across the borough and each week local residents can attend to try a range of gardening activities from seed sowing to planting, maintaining and managing herbs, shrubs, flowers soft fruit bushes, vegetables and fruit trees throughout the seasons, with the support and guidance of their community gardeners and volunteers.
