Growing for Life is a therapeutic horticultural project managed by Shekinah in Paignton.
We welcome anyone who believes they would benefit from spending time here. Whether you have decided you want to make positive changes in your lifestyle, are stressed out from the pressures of life, or have time on your hands and want to give something back you can volunteer with us
At Growing for Life you can get involved with growing vegetables, fruits and flowers, try your hand at green woodwork, rummage through our craft store and be creative with a range of resources, or simply sit and enjoy the peace and quiet of the site. Each lunch time we cook and eat a hot meal together.
Growing for Life aims to provide social reintegration and an opportunity for people to realise their potential and raise personal aspirations.
Our motto is: Work Together, Eat Together, Laugh Together, Look After Each Other
