Our work

Our outdoor activities take place across Kirklees in a wide variety of locations. We work with a different age groups and additional needs and disabilities. More information about our three main projects can be found here.

We currently benefit from the support of Cummins Turbo Technologies and Paddock Community Trust with staff volunteers, work space and provision of equipment and advice.

Businesses and Organisations can get involved with Growing works in various ways:

Corporate sponsorship is welcome at various levels. This vital support helps us to ensure the stability of our projects, it can provide equipment to enable people to get involved in outdoor activity, or it can fund our workers to support families attending SPRout, or vulnerable adults accessing our volunteer program or therapeutic gardening sessions.

You can find out more about becoming a corporate sponsor or making a donation here

Hiring the POD

We can provide lunchtime workshops for your staff supporting their well-being at work through simple growing and outdoor activities within the grounds of your business. These can be tailored towards what staff are interested in; for example planting, nurturing and harvesting salad vegetables for their lunches or improving an outdoor space to take breaks. Team building events can be designed to develop relationships between staff and promote healthy working relationships and a healthy work environment.

If you have an event and want to provide something a bit different for your clients or partners then why not hire the POD.  We can provide fun relaxed activities with a green message or a focus on health and well-being! Get in touch for a quote to suit your requirements.

Training and Workshops

We can provide training and workshops to organisations and professionals in our area of expertise. this could be for example, improving communication with families, learning about therapeutic horticulture, improving green spaces for people and wildlife.

For more information call 07719 509703 or e.mail info@growingworks.org.uk

Volunteering

Your staff can volunteer at any of our midweek or weekend sessions.  This can be as part of your commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, and can make valuable use of staff time during quieter periods for your business. We are a small charity and we particularly value the creative or technical skills other businesses and organisations may be able to offer. Whether this is helping us with advertising and fundraising, or supporting our team’s development.
