Grow Blackpool is part of Groundwork. The project's aim is to work with people to improve their health and well-being by supporting them to grow their own fruit and veg.
The Blackpool Community Farm is a key priority of the Blackpool Fairness Commission and will feature within the development of the City Learning Centre and locality. The Groundwork CLM Charity has been asked to develop the community farm with their Grow Blackpool Team leading on the project. The community farm aims to help Blackpool residents learn new skills, raise self-esteem, confidence, fight social isolation and increase employability. All aspects of horticulture will feature on the farm, especially growing fruit and vegetables.
