Welcome to Sage Green Growing Co.

Sage Green Growing Co. is a community interest company which is set up as a social enterprise to provide tangible benefits for local communities.

It is a ‘green care’ initiative providing a space for people who are aged 50+ and others in society who would benefit from improved well being, reduced social isolation and increased education opportunities.

All this can be achieved when outdoors with nature working in the beautiful walled garden at Powderham Castle.

We grow fruit and vegetables using organic methods. We plan to sell our produce to the local community. People participating will be offered vegetables we have grown to savour the delights of eating the food they have helped produce. Surplus produce will be donated to local charities and food banks.

We are a learning space where people can gain a horticulture qualification: City and Guilds Level 1 Award in Practical Horticulture.

We have received funding from Devon Community Foundation which helps Devon communities thrive . We want to share our space to provide somewhere where people can connect with nature; improve health and wellbeing and, for some, have the opportunity to be part of something where they feel valued and included. Much research has been done into the health benefits of being outdoors and connecting with nature.

If you are interested in the courses or would like to know more of what we offer please email us at info@sagegreengrowing.org.uk or call on 01626 248130.
