AIMS OF THE PROJECT
To bring together youngsters and older persons with disabilities, visual impairment and certain learning needs, in an environment that is safe, where they can learn from each other, build up their confidence, mix with other people from the community, be taught about the land,
how to grow vegetables, flowers and fruit etc. and be out in the fresh air having fun

EDUCATION SCHEMES
The Growing Zone has developed as a learning environment in several new directions over the passed two years.
