Project: Community Garden
The Community Garden project works in partnership with members of the local British Community to give vulnerable migrants the opportunity to take part in a program of fulfilling group activities.
Our Community Growing project aims to bring in diverse members of our community to learn and share their skills in gardening. We aim that through the project's activities we will see an improvement in the mental and physical health of migrant communities in Middlesbrough whilst also positively contributing to the local community. This project has been running since late summer of 2014 and it has grown in popularity with an average of 15 regular community members from over ten different nationalities accessing the project weekly. Community Growing project is one of the four partnership projects supported by Middlesbrough Environment City (MEC) as part of the Emerging Communities Projects.
At the end of the project participants will recieve a OCN level 1 accredited qualification in horticulture and will acquire ESOL through practise with others. They will also harvest and keep what they have planted during the project.
The project lasts for two hours, every Wednesday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
