Grow Your Community - Sudbury

ActivGardens in Sudbury

Grow Your Community provides opportunities for local people to get involved in community growing in and around Sudbury. Come and join our FREE garrdening sessions in Sudbury’s parks and open spaces.

Would you like to get out a bit more?

As well as our work in Belle Vue Park, we help individuals and groups improve their local environment. We also offer placements and group volunteering opportunities.

We work with:

  • Local people who want to get involved and make a difference
  • Community groups with shared interests
  • Organisations supporting people who may be facing challenges or disadvantage

The project is supported by Sudbury in Bloom and Babergh District Council’s Public Realm Team.


We meet up at Belle Vue Park, Ingrams Well Rd, Sudbury, CO10 2RT every Thursday at 9am until 12.00noon

The park is near Sudbury’s train station and bus station. There is plenty of free parking nearby in the town’s car parks and on Ingrams Well Road.

We also work in other Green Spaces in Sudbury and Great Cornard.

Get in touch with Beverly about areas where you live that you would like to tend with your neighbours. The Grow Your Community project wants to help make a change.

Grow you Future is back in Sudbury this September! 

If you are looking for a new direction or need a boost after the challenges of Covid-19 – how about taking part in a free outdoor learning programme at ActivGardens? Grow Your Future will enable you to learn new skills and gain confidence on your way to further learning, training or employment.

The 12-week programme includes gardening, horticulture and environmental conservation, with a chance to get involved in activities such as woodworking or bee-keeping. Grow Your Future is for young people aged 16 to 24 who are unemployed or economically inactive, and not engaging in education or training.
