Community Projects

Dotted around all villages and cities are under-used spaces. Greener Growth helps communities by reviving these neglected areas

It only takes one person to start something brilliant. Communities are the backbone of society and if you’d like to make a difference to yours, a Greener Growth project could be just the thing. Dotted around all villages and cities are under-used spaces. Greener Growth helps communities by reviving these neglected areas, turning them into resources that give to the community and bring it together.

Whether it’s a vegetable patch or a flowerbed, there’s so much we can do with even the smallest of areas. And we can also create significant spaces to grow, relax and meet. So let’s put away the phones, laptops and tablets, and bring communities back together with nature.

Something for the whole community sounds like a big task, but it really does just take one person to plant the seed of an idea. Could that be you? Get in touch.

Jo Metcalfe, of Greener Growth, in praise of our local councillors

So this is the week, when we are all voting for our local councillors – those of us that feel so inclined – you might think we would have little to do with politics being an education, conservation and therapeutic horticulture organisation. However, over the last five years we have had an increasing involvement with our local councillors, particularly those in and around Bury St Edmunds.
