Families Growing Together
Working in partnership with B3 Living
Families Growing Together is our pilot initiative to collaborate with social housing agencies to support residents in regenerating their gardens and building relationships, facilitating family and community resilience. We aim to do this in an holistic way through gardening and growing food.
We want to make the benefits of regenerative education accessible to those families who otherwise wouldn't be able to access it for socio-economic reasons. They will have the opportunity to learn innovative, new skills together in how to create and maintain low maintenance gardens, whilst developing an appreciation for the natural environment and promote good wellbeing.
Using The Design Web, a social permaculture framework, we work on helping facilitate good relationships, to meet the needs of the families and the housing agencies, promoting compassionate communication. We're not trained mediators or counsellors but our permaculture experience and resilience training, enables us to provide an open and non judgemental space in which others can freely share their thoughts and ideas.
