Help others to grow in 2020

You’ve told us that growing with others is what makes Bloom special, that’s why we’re calling on all groups to Grow Social in 2020. We’d love to see you making new connections in your community through plants; reaching beyond ‘the garden gate’ to bring people together.

 Grow Social will be the Bloom theme in 2020, but all community groups and schools will also be able to join in. We’re developing packs with inspiration and tools to help get you started, which you will be able to request by post or digitally download from January.

We realise many of you have been eagerly awaiting news of the Bloom theme to help with your planning, but please rest assured that as community gardeners who bring people together by nature, you’ll be halfway there already!

That’s why we want to hear your own innovative ideas. If you’ve worked to bring different parts of the community together through gardening, or reached out to those that might otherwise feel cut-off, please tell us more.
