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. 

For more information on either of our growing projects please contact our Haven Harvester Francesca at
