Thanks to One Community for their continued support

Growing works are thrilled to have been chosen to receive funding from One Communities “Bright Ideas” fund.

This project will work with Young Mentors to take a lead in their community with a series of “POD” events -in 5 locations over two years. Growing works are aiming for these events to generate their own income to continue into year 3 and beyond to enable our Young Mentors to develop their skills too.

Look out for the first one in Honley with Young Mentors Reuben and Charlotte. All welcome!
