Join us for an engaging morning of Virtual Networking with Wayne Setford, founder of Together We Grow.
Together We Grow CIC is a Social Enterprise founded in 2017 by Wayne Setford. Its aim was to improve the lives of communities and individuals by encouraging engagement with nature and educating people on how to grow their own food to help lead a healthier, happier and sustainable life.
Their HQ is now a thriving two-acre community garden in High Woods Country Park and the organisation has gone from strength to strength and they are working with local primary schools, children leaving care, children not in mainstream education and adults from the age of 18 experiencing poor mental health. During the Covid-19 national lockdown, Wayne and his team of community volunteers have supported local communities by helping them maintain both positive physical and mental health.
This is your opportunity to hear about a truly wonderful organisation and the work they do with individuals, schools and local communities.
Date: Thursday 18th February 2021 - 9.30am - 11.00am
Cost to attend: Members £10.00 + VAT Non-Members £20.00 + VAT
