Based in Banff, Grow @The Vinery is a positive, dynamic space which generates a sense of hope and pride in the community. There is a kitchen, cafe area, training space, wellbeing room and community garden with activities linked to accredited learning, work experience, apprenticeships and volunteering. An overarching aim of the project is to enhance environmental awareness and community food growing. We are seeking funding to enable us to increase our reach, ensuring flexible service delivery is integrated and accessible for vulnerable individuals, families and disadvantaged communities. Having an 8 seat hybrid vehicle will enable us to open up Grow @The Vinery programmes and services including gardening, cooking, wellbeing and Financial Inclusion to a wider number of people including those living in Portsoy, Whitehills, Aberchirder, Macduff and more rurally, who experience barriers to accessing services including poor transport infrastructure, anxiety around public transport, caring responsibilities, long term physical/mental health conditions, poverty.
