    About Us

    We have 3 sites from where we promote physical and mental wellbeing through volunteering in horticulture. Following the principles of social therapy in horticulture, we build esteem and confidence in individuals and we deliver workshops and activities in the community to promote community cohesion and resilience.

    Established since 2011, we also support a network of community gardens and friends of open spaces covering the whole PR postcode. We provide bulk buying discounts to the members and a monthly network meeting for the 34 group members to attend, share their experiences and their ideas. We loan tools and equipment.

    We help communities to improve their environment.

    We provide training in horticulture so that communities and individuals can grow their own food and plants.

    Our volunteers are diverse. The youngest is 14 and the older is 86. We have SEN groups and individuals, retired people and people who are seeking employment as well as people on long term sick or with disabilities preventing them from working.

    In the last 12 months, individuals have donated over 3000 hours to Lets Grow Preston.

    We generate a surplus income by delivering training, facilitating projects and selling plants.

    We collect surplus food grown by local allotmenteers annually throughout the summer holidays in order to supplement the local food hubs with fresh produce, grown locally. Each year this equates to about 8000 meals over an 8 week period and sequesters 1 ton of carbon. Which is the same that a tree would sequester in its lifetime of between 40 and 100 years.

    These are some of our accreditations;

     

    Let’s Grow Preston won our Small Social Enterprise of the Year award in 2022.
