The Urban Garden is managed and run by Grow Yourself, an established Community Interest Company (CIC). We are based at the lower end of the B&NES council nursery site and have a collaborative partnership with the council, who supply some of our plants. We also work in collaboration with Bath based charity, Grow for Life, who deliver our City & Guilds course in practical horticulture. All profits from the Urban Garden are reinvested back into the training, helping to improve the mental health and wellbeing of local adults.
We also work with the horticultural charity Grow for Life who deliver our therapeutic horticulture training.
A Social Enterprise
Grow Yourself CIC has been delivering horticultural training to young unemployed adults in Bath for the last 5 years and have helped many get back into work.
We take the power of plants and use it to help people grow.
Our Vision statement to 2024:
The Urban Garden will be the go-to place for people buying plants in Bath and the oasis where they connect with staff and volunteers to help our social enterprise build a healthier community.
