Grow For Giving - Rooted in Community
Humble Beginnings Growing Stronger Everyday!
Grow for Giving project is a non profit community organisation and was established on plot number 118 'The Patchwork Plot' in 2013 by Eunan Jones, a keen multi-skilled allotment gardener and Committee member of Tyldesley allotment association. Eunan realised that many of the 144 plot tenants had surplus food left over after each growing season, fresh food that would end up on the compost heap. Eunan asked the tenants to consider donating it rather than waste it. From a wheel barrow full of donated produce to the varied horticultural project we are today! Since our humble beginning the project is now coordinated and being developed by Pamela Jones-Brown, Eunan Jones, Paul Costello, Susan Szkilnyk & Ian Parkinson, who make up the board of directors. All who are working direct with Adults and Children are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS formerly CRB) cleared and are committed to safeguarding our vulnerable adults, children and young people. All staff and directors have personal experience of dementia and/or learning disabilities. Pamela comes from a long background of working direct with people and managing projects giving Grow for Giving the strong foundation from which to grow.
