Love Local’s Food-Growing Course


The Love Local project team here at PECT is very pleased to announce the launch of its brand new food-growing course, led by a community gardening expert from The Green Backyard.

This “Let’s Get Growing” course is aimed at adults and families living in targeted areas of Peterborough.

Our first workshop took place at the Gladstone Children’s Centre on 5th June. We began the workshop with a discussion about food growing and the benefits of incorporating more fruits, vegetables and herbs in the diet. We then got our hands messy planting seeds in mini gardening pots.

Next week we’ll be outside in the garden, preparing the growing area and sowing some of our own seeds.

Our next workshops will be taking place at Gladstone Children's Centre from 10-12pm on the following dates:
19th June, 3rd July, 17th July, 31st July, 14th August, 28th August
