Grow Together is a year-long volunteer project for 2019, created to inspire a love of growing food and flowers and an active lifestyle through gardening, in communities across Rutland.

Could you be a Grow Together Volunteer Gardener?

Our 10 Volunteer Gardeners will have a keen interest for gardening, the enthusiasm and desire to share their knowledge, and the confidence to bring a community together through communications and events and lead them in gardening idea. In return for their time and commitment, each volunteer will benefit from professional horticultural training, project support, and event resources to help them in their role. They will also be part of a thriving group of like-minded volunteers who will get together and support each other throughout the project.
