Growing

Green Dream is our community growing project, currently running from our secluded 4-acre site on Waverley Street. We want to extend the site to a larger canal-side location so that more people can participate in the project or simply enjoy the gardens and green spaces that we create. 

We work with volunteers from all walks of life - young and old, working and unemployed, fit and healthy and those in recovery from mental health problems or alcohol and substance misuse. We provide a friendly and welcoming community where you can drop in anytime.
