Growing Well is a Soil Association certified social enterprise based at Low Sizergh Farm. We grow and sell superb organic veg from our six acre site, we train all kinds of people in horticulture and we run a programme of educational visits to our site. We do all these things as a means of creating volunteering placements for local people recovering from mental health issues, giving everyone opportunities to build their confidence and skills in a busy work environment.

Growing organic produce

We grow on six acres of rolling fields on the edge of the Lake District. All our growing is Soil Association certified and undertaken by our volunteers. Once harvested and packed, our produce is sold to a variety of local businesses, including the fantastic farm-shop on our farm, Low Sizergh Barn . Also we operate a Cropshare Scheme whereby local people can buy a share of our crop, getting a weekly bag of fresh veg, as well as getting involved in the work on the farm.

Growing Well is a City and Guilds Centre providing a variety of accredited training courses in horticulture and other land-based activities, open to everyone from the keen gardener to the professional. We train students on our site at Low Sizergh Farm and in our yurt based classroom.
