Get Out & Grow 2024!

This summer, our campaign to Get Out & Grow shines a spotlight on the incredible work our youth groups have been involved with, including our Social Action Group who have been looking after their local environments through litter picking and building bug hotels, and our Allotment Group who have been working on a special project with the National Trust and Great North Museum to build their very own pizza oven!

Through these projects we’ve been encouraging children and young people to get in to nature and explore the world around them. The activities have helped improve their mental health, shape team-building and communicative bonds and the sensory developments of children learning new sensations and textures.

Whether you live in a rural area with plenty of green space, or a city with a local park we are encouraging families to spend time together learning about the natural world.

If you would like to join in with the action, we are offering free Seed Grow Pouches to encourage people to Get Out & Grow! These handy pouches are small enough to thrive on a windowsill and will grow bee attracting flowers which can be planted outdoors or in a pot. Teaching children the cycle of seed to sproutlings to full plants, and how these play an important role in our biodiversity. Sign up now to get your free Seed Grow Pouch, and make sure to send us some photos!
