Community growing

Weston Under Wetherley Conservation group

The Conservation group is a group of enthusiasts, born from the Weston under Wetherley Parish Plan (published in June, 2013) which determined that over 25% of the villagers wanted to see some areas within the village managed to support a greater diversity of plant and animal life.

Ansty Allotment Shed

The Ansty allotments are owned by the Ansty Sports and Social Club. All plot holders are members of the thriving club.  
The plots are located a short distance from the club building and have now buildings or sheds for storage of equipment or shelter.
The Association applied to Get Growing for a communal shed that would enable members to shelter and store communal equipment.

Broadwell Pig Club

Broadwell is a tiny village in rural Warwickshire.

For some time, a group of families had dreamt of starting a pig club.
Having visited the nearby pig clubs at Brinklow and Marton, they were enthused by what could  be achieved.
In June 2013, they heard about the Get Growing project and applied for start up resources and training.
The group delivered a flier to every house in the village and found 8 families interested in joining.
Once a suitable piece of land was found, the group got to work in preparing it for a fenced pen with two arcs.

Bishop's Tachbrook Horticultural Supplies Shed

Bishop's Tachbrook Horticultural and Allotments Society have run a supplies shed for 20 years. The enterprise is run as a cooperative and gives local residents access to competitively priced compost, fetilisers and other growing aids. The 'shed', old shipping container,  had become badly rusted. Water ingress and rodent invasions were damaging stock. The group applied to Get Growing for the replacement of the container in order to allow the continuation of trading.

Burton Green School Get Growing

The whole school community is committed to preserving the rural aspect of the school and has recently purchased a large field next to the existing school site. Plans are currently being finalised to develop this into an outside learning resources to support learning outdoors across the curriculum.
One aspect of the plan was to develop a growing area. The school applied to the Get Growing project to assist in the design and development of a growing area consiting of raised beds, a potting shed and a herb bed. The children are eager to get started!
