Earlier this year, unique Leicestershire charity the Shuttlewood Clarke Foundation, was pleased to launch ‘Grow with Us’ and will be holding an Open Day on Friday 14th December, 2012 between 10.00 a.m. – 2.00 p.m. for groups and individuals to come along and find out more about this wonderful Community Allotment Gardening Project.
The Foundation is delighted to announce that its Patron, TV and Radio Celebrity Gardner, Ady Dayman, will be on hand to offer information and support to those who may be interested in joining the project.
The aim of this long term gardening project is to link young adults with learning difficulties with members of the wider community who have an interest in allotment style gardening and a desire to pass on their skills; making it an ideal opportunity for groups such as Gardening Clubs, Rotary and U3A Groups to become involved and create a real community allotment.
Alan Norman, Chief Executive of the Foundation, said “the project has gotten off to a wonderful start and we are delighted to have a number of groups involved, are fortunate to have a small, dedicated team of volunteers and are very grateful for Ady’s support in promoting this.”
Mr Norman added “this community project will bring real benefits to both the young people and the volunteers as a joint learning experience and has the potential to develop into a real, sustainable long term association.”
