Weekly Growing Sessions at Stephenson Way Community Centre

Learn how to grow herbs and vegetables or share your skills with others at weekly growing sessions at Stephenson Way Communitys Centre. Starting with The Big Plant Out launch events in National Gardening Week, you can start getting involved by transplanting seedlings that have been grown in polytunnels at The Green Patch community allotment to the four new growing spaces in Corby.

Guided by Groundwork Northamptonshire staff from The Green Patch you’ll learn how to plant and tend to herbs, potatoes, tomatoes, courgettes and beans ready for harvest in July. Volunteers will be needed for planting, watering, weeding, building cane wig wags for beans and lots of other jobs too.  There are raised beds at each venue, so even if bending and stretching is difficult you can still join in!

The food grown will be harvested in late July and cooked by three local chefs from different cultures represented in the town and served to the public at a community feast in Coronation Park during Corby’s Grow Festival, which this year is celebrating all things culinary. This year’s festival, commissioned by Made in Corby and co-produced by The Core at Corby Cube takes place on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 July 2019 and will once again animate the town centre with hilarious street performers, magical family pop-up shows and spectacular art, all inspired by the theme of ‘food’.

More information about this project and Grow Festival can be found on the Grow Festival FacebookTwitter and Instagram channels.
