Growing Spaces 2011 Training Events
Growing Ideas are currently running the autumn community drop-in support sessions for Growing Spaces 2011. Six sessions in locations across the Isle of Wight (Ryde, Newport and Cowes) will include training and advice on healthy cooking, preserving and pickling – all focused on the produce from residents’ own raised bed. Fruit Tree Giveaway Project participants will also be offered the choice of a free fruit tree or bush to plant along with their raised bed.
Growing Spaces is our flagship, award winning community project – Growing Spaces won the National Housing Federation’s What We Are Proud Of 2010 award for the south east. Growing Spaces is delivered by us in partnership with Medina Housing Association – it’s a raised bed project that aims to give people everything they need to start to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
