As some of you may be aware, The Federation of City Farms & Community Gardens merged with Care Farming UK as of 1st April and we are now called Social Farms & Gardens.
Have A Grow Day on 2nd June 2018?
We are aiming to get as many community growing projects as possible across Wales to all open on this day to celebrate community growing, spread the word and give everyone a chance to come and see a community garden who may not have had the chance to visit before. The day is aimed at any type of community group doing any type of growing, whether that’s a community garden, school garden, community supported agriculture scheme or just some planters at the end of the street.
We are preparing a special pack to send to those projects taking part which will include posters, bunting, stickers, balloons and arrows. We’re also constructing a website where projects will be shown on a map with some details so people know you are open. We’ll help promote the day on social media to spread the word. Once they have registered, we’ll arrange for a special pack to be sent out.
All gardens taking part will be entered into a prize draw to win garden centre vouchers.
