THE NEW GROWTH PROJECT

“Our mission is to provide free education and training for unemployed and disadvantaged people. Raise awareness of the environment, the physical health benefits and mental well being that gardening can have and bring people together socially through gardening and promote healthy, active lifestyles.”

 The New Growth Project is a charity project that we have started to provide free horticultural training to unemployed people. The first course took place in our garden in Co. Mayo in March 2012 and we followed that with two more throughout the year. Our first course had 4 participants but now we have improved facilities so this year we will be offering 8 places on the course in the RHSI Garden School in Marlay Park, Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin.

 Any profits made from The Garden School will go to The New Growth Project and schools workshops. If you want to support our project  you can do so by enrolling on a course, book a one day course, we can even come to your garden to deliver a course.
