We want to make Grozone accessible for everyone regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances. That's why we don't charge for the garden's open sessions or the activities we run. We also provide free refreshments, home grown vegetables, waterproofs and work boots for those who need them But it all comes with a cost - providing the equipment, clothing, the seeds we use every year. There's also the cost of paying for our staff to organise, support, teach, listen, guide and run activities with the volunteers.
Currently Grozone receives no core funding to support the amazing work we're doing for both our volunteers and the environment. Funding in the past has helped us with absolutely everything at Grozone! Everything from purchasing the seeds for our food growing and tea bags to keep our volunteers in brews to the substantial materials to build our wheelchair ramp to our compost toilet.
It allows us to be open three times a week, with a member of staff to plan, assist, lead, support and guide the volunteers and for the volunteer sessions free to everyone to attend.
We are currently running a Spacehive Crowd Funding Campaign to make the most of amazing match funding from the Council www.spacehive.com/grozone - its a really powerful time to donate so if you can spare even a couple of ££s it will be tripled by the council and will allow us to have a super productive growing season and share our gorgeous fresh produce with anyone that needs it!
Any help you could give us would be very gratefully received, and is guaranteed to be spent on improving our site and volunteer experience.
We take our donations via PayPal to ensure your donation is entirely secure.
