About Let's Grow Preston
Let's Grow Preston started as Preston Environmental Forum, It was originally set up in 2011 as a network of community environmental projects.
We promote physical and mental wellbeing through volunteering in horticulture by creating and improving green spaces in Preston to impact the lives of people living in those communities.
Let's Grow Preston empowers communities and individuals through projects such as community gardens, improving woodland and park areas, education within food growing, volunteering and providing training within horticulture.
We are based within Ashton Walled Garden located on Ashton Park. We have a abundant community garden which is used for training, volunteering and growing stocks of plants. We also run a community garden in Grange which sites a small orchard, two poly tunnels, a vegetable garden and pizza oven.
Let's Grow Preston provide a network to help support communities and members by sharing resources and materials, creating projects and workshops, to help grow together.
