Growing Gang

The Growing Gang is a community-based work-experience scheme focused on gardening and work-life skills for adults with learning support needs. It provides gardening services to community spaces and individuals in need. Spaces maintained by Growing Gang include the Courtyard Garden outside Church House Hitchin, several allotments and parts of the Triangle Community Garden.

Volunteers at our Ability projects are an invaluable source of support. Their commitment and enthusiasm enables our gardeners to do so much more. Volunteering offers the opportunity to make a real difference, to develop new skills, build on existing experience and knowledge, and to reap the social benefits of meeting new people, making friends and getting to involved in the local community.

If you would like to help support our Ability projects on a regular basis, you will need to have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This is to make sure that our service users are in safe hands. We will guide you through the form and pay for the process.
