Volunteering impact


The growing opportunity in this built up, urban neighbourhood helps improve the well-being for each volunteer who participates in a session. The food that is being grown, when ready to harvest, will be enjoyed by those who've volunteered, those using the Community Centre cafe and the Cookery School, which are both also in the Community Centre. Fresh locally grown food, being enjoyed by the community at local level.
