'Have A Grow Day' is a community gardens open day, celebrated across the UK

Previously, over 30 gardens in Wales took part in the first 'Have A Grow Day' and it has grown in popularity ever since, we are so pleased to say that it will be happening again on Saturday 5th June 2021!

The day is a way of promoting and celebrating the work of community growing groups who help transform lives and neighbourhoods all over the UK. It's also a chance to raise some money through donations from visitors/ virtual visitors and even finding some new volunteers! Whether you’re involved as a visitor/ virtual visitor, volunteer or staff member, the idea is to spread the word and promote your local community garden or allotment, school garden, farm or community supported agriculture scheme.

We’d like to get as many Social Farms & Gardens members across the UK as possible to take part in Have A Grow Day, and help you reach out to your local community, whether it be virtually or otherwise. Why not throw open your virtual gates to celebrate your fantastic work.

Our FREE Have A Grow Day resource pack will soon be available to download, as well as more ideas and top tips to help you run a successful event coming soon.

If you’re not yet a member, join us here – it’s free!

Growing Communities

"Joining Social Farms & Gardens is the best thing we did. They have helped us with our constitution and advised on charitable status. Being part of a wide network it has given us credibility."

Growing People

"It has been a great source of pleasure to me to watch this organisation become a real force for good in recent years, not least in the development of national policy. I hope and pray that this will continue for the next thirty years because there is no doubt in my mind that its work is only going to grow in importance."
