The project offers an expansion to our current Roots to Recovery project by providing a social enterprise that is used for training of horticulture and well being. Roots to Success (R2S) operates in a 2500 sq2 glasshouse located on the award winning Stockwood Park in the borough of Luton, and run by Bedfordshire Rural Community Charity over seen by Luton Culture. Currently it has 5 volunteers donating 20 hours per month to Stockwood park gardening department. We have a current arrangement to sell plants and flowers through the Stockwood park gift shop.
This additional project provides opportunity to:
- To have a social enterprise that will generate an income through growing and retail of locally grown plants
- To provide gardening services across Bedfordshire and the SIG family and give clients the chance to gain real work experience
- To provide more voluntary and apprenticeships opportunities to our current client group.
