During 2014-2015 Green Synergy was contracted to deliver a range of micro projects by the Directorate of Public Health, Lincolnshire County Council, under their ‘Cooking and Growing Programme’.
The programme aimed to provide the knowledge and skills people need to make healthy food choices, but most of all to discover how enjoyable eating healthily and growing your own can be. As part of the programme we delivered a range of social and therapeutic gardening sessions to Busy Days, Day Care for adults with special needs; YMCA; Ellie’s community garden group and residents of St Giles and Ermine.
The programme also funded the Lincoln Growing Groups Forum- a networking group for local organisations to find out more about community and therapeutic gardening. The workshops were a great success and were attended by an average of 15 people per session, representing a total of 11 different groups and organisations.
