If you are looking for a new direction – how about taking part in a FREE outdoor-based learning programme at ActivGardens?

The 12-week programme available on Mondays or Fridays will include garden maintenance, horticulture and environmental conservation, with a chance to get involved in specialist activities such as woodworking or bee-keeping at The People’s Community Garden, Halifax Rd, Ipswich, IP2 8RE. Grow Your Future is for anyone aged 16+ who is unemployed or economically inactive, and encourages people who face barriers to work – such as a disability, health condition, or caring responsibilities.


ActivGardens provide a rounded learning environment with positive outcomes for work and life.

‘Grow Your Future’ will enable you to learn new skills and gain confidence on your way to further opportunities.

“I am so glad I came to the community garden this week, I have had a bad week…and I really didn’t feel like going but I am so glad I did I feel so much better now, being in the garden, getting fresh air, seeing the staff and other volunteers has put a big smile on my face, I can’t wait til next week now.”

“I like all the people here, and I feel comfortable, safe and while I am here I can just be myself. It helps to mix and meet others, as living alone I don’t have much outside life, so coming here helps with anxiety.
