Growing Local CIC

Growing Local CIC is crowdfunding

raised of £750 target by 7 supporters

Weʼre raising £750 to purchase benches & picnic tables for our new Picnic Area and to place around our CSA Market Garden, Children's Garden & Pedestrian Walkways

11 days to go

Don't have time to donate right now?


We would like to install picnic tables in our new picnic area and benches around our CSA market garden, pedestrian walkways and children's gardens to be enjoyed by our visitors and the local community of South Wye.

We will be purchasing refurbished items or furniture made from re-purposed timber from local charity Widemarsh Ventures in Hereford who have already supplied us with a new community notice board and are working on sheds for our children's garden.

Each item is refurbished or carpentered individually by the brilliant team at Widemarsh Ventures who support vulnerable adults with learning disabilitites to learn woodworking skills in their fully fitted commercial workshop on the Three Elms Estate.

Each item will range in cost from circa £75 to £350. This fund will enable us to purchase our very first few benches and picnic benches for our site. We hope to continue fundraising to eventually purchase enough for the entire site.

      So wish I could help in practical ways; but ageing process has caught up with me! Anyway this small donation makes me feel I'm at least doing a tiny bit. Great stuff!

      This is for a bench 'in memory of Mum'. If possible I would like a small brass plaque inscribed with these words. I will pay for this, if you let me know the cost. Very well done on all accounts!!!!
