Growing People: Sacro's Garden Project
Sacro's Garden Project offers individuals aged 18+ who face barriers to employment and social inclusion the opportunity to learn and develop new skills. The project allows participants to increase self-confidence and improve mental and physical health whilst improving amenities within the community. In partnership with Glasgow City Council, Land Environment Services and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Sacro are delivering the Garden Project in Govanhill Park and Tollcross Park.
The Garden Project is delivered in three steps which are designed to ease individuals into a routine and gradually build confidence and skills. These steps introduce structure and motivation. Participants are supported and mentored by Sacro staff and engagement in the project may lead to work experience, apprenticeships and job opportunities.
