Good to Grow – older people’s gardening group

  Wednesday 23 Sep 2020 - Wednesday 11 Nov 2020

  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. A wonderful way to help improve wellbeing and take time to notice nature as we head into the colder 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, and near to toilets and a cosy café if the weather is less than ideal.

Booking instructions

This free group will meet for eight weeks on Wednesday afternoons, 1-2.30pm, from 23rd September 2020. Participants should ideally attend all eight sessions and must book their place in advance.
