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.
