Grow Loughborough  

We make events that bring together creative, gardening and wellbeing projects with a social ethos.

In 2019 we kicked off in June with a weekend trail across four National Garden Scheme (NGS) open gardens, In July we co-ordinated an Open Allotments day, and in September celebrated up cycling with some practical creative workshops,

We're working on plans for 2020 with lots for all ages to enjoy,  we hope to see you there.

Grow Gardens

Celebrating Gardens


Over the last few years we've joined forces with our local Open Gardens to offer wellbeing and creative activities for garden visitors, including a Secret Craft Fair, installations, and in 2019 Lisa of Little Bird SOS was under an apple tree with her spinning wheel demonstrating how to create yarn out of up cycled fabrics.

Allotments & Greenspaces

Exploring Spaces

We've created great Open Days with The Green Gym and the superb John Storer Charnwood plots on Mountfields Allotments.

We invite artists, makers and gardening for wellbeing projects to provide stalls and activities  across the allotment and community spaces.

Teas, Cake, plus ice-cream in the Beach Garden
