“I am enjoying the NVQ – I’m thrilled; I’m skipping home. My minds been ticking over about employment. I’m planning to leave once I’ve finished my NVQ.”
After joining our admin team.
“I am getting more sense of satisfaction as I become more aware of things. I completed my CV – its good I managed to do this, it’s been blocked for years.”
Noticing the impact of our wider activities on wellbeing.
“I would never have gone to the AGM twelve months ago. I wouldn’t have gone to the open day twelve months ago. – I am really seeing how ill I was over the last five years. I do feel things have changed, Growing Well was fundamental to it.”
“I really enjoy the activities, they are stretching me, though I can sometimes get frustrated – it’s all good practice for going back to work.”
“Staff and children really enjoyed the visit. Good hands-on experiences. A good balance of activities”
“We like the feeling of connection we get to the farm from the email newsletter.”
“This was a worthwhile visit. It provided many cross-curricular areas, it was well-planned and it was fun.”
Noticing the impact of volunteering at Growing Well for a month.
“It’s excellent, it’s helping me a lot. I’m always busy. I’m seeing a massive difference in my concentration – its lifting the tension off me.”
“The course was so professional and inspiring and we all had so much fun working in a practical growing environment.”
“Growing Well has had huge success, giving many people a new confidence, and is one of the best farm-education initiatives I have ever seen. They have generated a unique business model, working independently alongside a very successful, diversified rural farm-business. Growing Well deserves all the praise and support in the world.”
“It's like eating delicious home grown vegetables but you don't have to grow them yourself.”
