Good to Grow – older people’s gardening group

This event has already run

  Wednesday 1 Sep 2021 - Wednesday 20 Oct 2021

  1:00 pm  - 2:30 pm

Join us for a free, sociable gardening course at our hugely popular Demo garden in Preston Park.

This 8-week course for older people gives the opportunity to help care for a beautiful garden, share a cuppa with others and get active outside.

The sessions enable participants to meet new friends whilst tending plants, sharing knowledge and learning about food growing and wildlife friendly gardening. Gardening is a wonderful way to help improve wellbeing and take time to notice nature as we head into the warmer months.

No experience or knowledge is required – the group is open to everyone from beginners to keen gardeners. The gardening activities are adaptable to a range of abilities and fitness levels. The garden is an accessible space, with bus stops nearby, is near to toilets and a cosy café if the weather is less than ideal.
