The Haven Plot and the ‘Learning & Growing Together’ Grow Your Own courses came to fruition in May 2022. In partnership with One Seed Forward we received funding from the Communities Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund to run two free Grow Your Own courses.
The Haven Plot is a garden on the beachfront, it has a greenhouse and outdoor growing area, plus a stunning seaview. The Plot is the teaching site for free GYO courses. Our Haven Harvester Francesca taught two courses in 2022 and another one in April 2023. . Food grown at the Plot is used in the Community Larder.
Future ideas for the Haven Plot:
- Continue to run more free Grow Your Own courses.
- Grow more fruit and veg in the Plot for the Community Larder.
- Cook healthy meals in our cooking classes from produce grown in the Plot.
- Connect with more individuals and organisations and inspire them to get growing.
