Projects

Our projects focus on supporting disadvantaged people by working with local schools, community centres and housing estates in the heart of London’s bustling East End. Through our participation in EU funded projects, we’ve worked in many countries, including Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuanian, Norway and Spain.

Greening Communities
Seeds for Growth is identifying underused land on social housing estates and then engaging with the local tenants to establish a group leading the establishment of community gardens, which have a number of brilliant benefits for health and wellbeing.

Health and wellbeing projects
By addressing the root causes of poor health, and through working in partnership with local agencies, Seeds for Growth improves the well-being of East End communities. We have designed and delivered projects to reduce child and adult obesity, increase fitness for all, address the high incidence of poor diet related ill health and, in particular, Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular issues.
