Growing plants, individuals and communities
Grow Together was set up to benefit local residents in South Bucks. We aim to support residents from all backgrounds, but specifically those in greatest need.
Our objectives are to enhance the lives of individuals, engage with local businesses, improve biodiversity and to protect the environment. By doing this we hope to help people understand the importance of the source of food, and the role that a good diet plays in general wellbeing.
Working with us, our volunteer gardeners grow produce which they harvest and incorporate the home-grown fruit and veg into their diet. Our base is an allotment at Back Lane, which we manage as a community allotment. In addition we encourage reduction of food waste by facilitating other allotment tenants in the locality to donate spare produce to the foodbank and also by urban harvesting.
We also work with local companies which wish to meet their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitments by brokering arrangements for their staff to volunteer with us at local schools, for example.
We also partner with other local organisations which compliment our aims/ objectives.
Grow Together is a Community Interest Company (CIC) limited by guarantee. In other words we are a ‘not for profit’ organisation.
