Let's get gardening in Blaby!

It's clear gardens can be great for the environment and for wildlife - but they are also good for people too according to an increasing body of research. Which is why this month saw the annual celebration of people coming together to exercise their green fingers with Community Garden Week.

Blaby District Council has its own community garden, A Place to Grow, at the rear of Enderby Leisure Centre. Created specifically to help residents who might be finding life challenging, A Place To Grow aims to support positive mental health and well-being.

People can get involved in being physically active, learn new skills, produce and share healthy food and meet others in a friendly, informal and safe environment.

Anyone who lives or works in the District can join in with A Place to Grow. You may have a long term health condition, learning disability, be recently bereaved, feel isolated and lonely or just want to get more active and get closer to nature.
