Mission Statement

What does Growing Roots do?

Growing Roots is a small charity based on an allotment on Highfield Park in St Albans which aims to encourage the growing of vegetables, fruit and flowers by beneficiaries.    

Growing Roots seeks to promote the mental and physical health and well-being of individuals, by providing the opportunity to grow their own vegetables, fruit and flowers on a share of an allotment, with a view to moving on to a half-plot in time, and ultimately to cultivate their produce independently. 

Growing Roots encourages this activity to promote healthy eating, exercise in the fresh air, a sense of purpose, routine and motivation, and greater independence.
