YMCA Growing Communities
4th December 2015
YMCA Growing Communities is a community garden-based social enterprise, managed by YMCA Coventry and Warwickshire. It has been designed and built by young people that we work with, using reclaimed and recycled materials and provides them with the opportunity to volunteer time, learn new skills, build confidence and to meet new people. Based at a allotment site in Coventry, YMCA Growing Communities provides a friendly and relaxed environment to learn about and get involved in planting, growing produce, landscaping and construction.
We regularly host team building days, where groups of staff come along and get stuck in to help us with whatever we need to achieve on that day and are planning a willow classroom, where ‘lessons’ can be delivered outside.
To be completed
Our aim is to improve assist in the development of young people.
