Growing Works is Going Greener!
Thanks to support from Morrisons’ Foundation Growing Works has replaced our diesel van with an environmentally friendly electric one, reducing our emissions substantially.
A big thank you also to Shepley Spring for offering the use of their charging facility!
Our Nissan EV200 has already been busy allowing us to develop our therapeutic centre and transporting donated food from The Full Life Church in Thongsbridge to DASH (Destitute Asylum Seekers Huddersfield) in Paddock.
Thanks to Thriving Kirklees and Dewsbury Parish Councillors for providing funding towards Sprout.
2020 Charity calendar
Thanks to many of our friend and supporter who have submitted photos to produce our 2019 Growing Works calendar. Available on recycled paper they are for sale for just £10, contact us directly or see us at Dark Wood Festive Market on 6th Dec. Don’t forget to send your photos in for next years calendar competitions!
Our amazing volunteers have been busy making crafts for sale, thanks to the volunteers who have joined our 4 week willow course and green woodworking course. Thanks also to Good Gym who joined us at Paddock Village Hall to help us prepare for selling our crafts at the Dark Wood Festive Market on 6th December.
Looking forward to the Solstice Event
We had a wonderful time at our Autumn event, our guests refereed to it as “homely” and “good vibe”. We shared some great food, chilling by the fire, made braids and had a go at making plant prints using the Japanese art of Hapa Zome. Can’t wait for our winter event on 17th December, open to all.
Thanks to Princes Trust Young People
The Young People with both the Princes Trust and Flex Group got stuck in at helping out at our therapeutic centre. They raised money to help establish a sensory garden, building raised beds for sensory plants, developing a den area with sensory stimulation. They also planned sign writing for our containers.
