|Help your community shake off the lockdown blues by taking part in our first ever UK-wide Have a Grow Day on Saturday 5th June! Have a Grow Day is a celebration of our amazing sector, and you’re part of it. We want to bring all our members together for a UK-wide event to shout about the fantastic work you do, and also help you bring new visitors and volunteers to your site. |
So how can you take part? All SF&G members can take place in HAGD – whether you’re a community garden, city farm, CSA scheme or care farm, or anything in between…and whatever restrictions are in place for your area in early June. Download our Participation Pack for activity inspiration. You could run guided tours, plant sales or gardening sessions, but you know your space and community best, so the activities you run on the day are up to you!
We also know that some of you won’t be able to open on that day (for example if you’re a school farm), so if you want to run a HAGD event in the week running up to the big day, then that’s fine by us as well. If you’re not able or ready to open to the public, you can still join in online offering virtual garden sessions or tours. In fact, we’re running a special webinar on Tuesday 11th May to give all members the confidence to create a video tour of your site. Book Online.
Three simple steps to get growing with us on June 5th: Log in to our website and register your event (if you’re not a member yet you can sign up for free here) Use our templates and graphics to plan and promote your event – you’ll be sent a link to access these once you’ve registered Use the hashtag #haveagrow …and with the Big Lunch taking place on Sunday 6th June, why not make a weekend of it?
Have a Grow Day is an initiative of Social Farms & Gardens supported by Nature’s Path to bring you a national celebration of community growing taking place at gardens and farms all over the UK.
