  • Have you signed up for your free Grow Social pack?

    Created: 25/02/2020

    Grow Social is the Britain in Bloom theme for 2020, but all groups and individuals can also join in.
    Loneliness is a major health concern in the UK, but we’ve seen how plants can play a part in connecting people and making us feel better. Grow Social is designed to help you share what you love about plants by holding an event for other people in your community. They'd love you to seek out new connections where you live, or to reach out to those who may be feeling isolated.
    Events can be big or small - maybe you could host a nature walk, planting day or tea tasting session. You could host an event on your own or team-up with another local group. They don’t mind how you shape your event, all they ask is that you try and involve plants in some way.

    You can claim your pack up until Friday 28 March 2020. To get your free pack please click here.
