We were delighted to give a donation of gardening and refreshment products to the 'Sabden Growers' a local group who are run by Gordon and Sue Parsonson along with eight volunteers operating on the Johnson Fold estate in Bolton. 

The group have been holding weekly session on Wednesday and Thursday from 1 am until 2pm for the families on the estate teaching them how to plant and  grow fruit and vegetables, create recipes from what is grown and leftovers, creating compost heaps, freezing food, looking after chickens, recycling making bird feeders from empty plastic milk bottles, painting furniture, teaching the children about sustainability  and arts and crafts. Sabden Growers also cater for special needs and anyone with mental health problems, they are a hub for the community.
