Funding round now open: create your project and pitch to the Our Vale Fund by 10th February.
Time Together/ Make A Meal Of It by offering the opportunity for young carers and families to participate in an introduction to Kitchen Gardening. Families will have the opportunity to 'learn and grow together.' whilst transforming a community space by growing vegetables and learning gardening techniques in a place of wellbeing and learning within a natural environment. The project is designed to foster shared communication and bonding between young people and parent/guardian through practical activities including; plant identification, growing vegetables and herbs, growing in limited spaces, recyclables, foraging and cooking (on a shoestring!). The intention is for families to transfer learning and skills gained from Lindengate's Kitchen Garden Programme into the home environment so the bonding process can continue as well as transforming and enhancing Lindengate's Kitchen Garden for all to enjoy!
