Over 30 gardens took part in the first 'Have A Grow Day' which took place in Wales a few years ago, and it has grown in popularity ever since.
We are so pleased to say that it will be happening this year, providing the opportunity to promote our members to visitors both online and in person (Covid 19 restrictions permitting).
Where: Online all over the UK or at an SF&G member site near you
When: Saturday 5th June 2021
What is ‘Have a Grow Day’?
Have a Grow Day is an initiative of Social Farms & Gardens supported by Nature’s Path. It is:
A way of promoting and celebrating the work of our members who help transform lives and neighbourhoods all over the UK.
A chance to raise some money through donations from visitors/virtual visitors and even finding some new volunteers!
A way to connect with your community and for your community to connect with their local SF&G members.
The idea is to spread the word and promote your local community garden or allotment, school garden, community farm or CSA scheme, and reach out to your local community, whether it be virtually or otherwise.
If you're not able or not quite ready to open your gates again on 5th June, you could set up a virtual tour of your site on your website or facebook page. We will promote this for you on our 'Have a Grow Day' map on our website and through our social media channels. We will also provide some downloadable resources to help you plan for the day.
Need more help? Attend our 'Members' Webinar - Creating a Video Tour' on 11th May 2021 We've invited some Social Farms & Gardens members to share their experience of creating a video tour of their site. Book your place here
We’d like to get as many Social Farms & Gardens members across the UK as possible to take part in Have A Grow Day 2021. Why not throw open your gates/virtual gates to celebrate your fantastic work?
