Working with community organisations

Season Well helps people learn how to grow, cook and eat seasonal food. We can help more people through working with organisations already linked to their communities. We have worked with Mental Wellbeing charities, Older People’s charities, Learning Disability charities, Community Centres etc.
Your service users will get all the wellbeing benefits from time spent gardening and access to fresh, healthy produce.
We can offer your organisation one-off workshops and tailored courses or we can work with you as consultants to develop your own bespoke food growing and cooking project. We can work with your organisation to help set up your own food growing space

“When you can get healthy stuff to taste this good, I wouldn’t mind being healthy for the rest of my life.”
