Community Growth

A new L’Arche Belfast growing and horticulture project with courses in North, West and South East Belfast.

At community growth we encourage you to grow–your skills, your confidence and your friendship network. Learn how to produce fruit and vegetables in our large allotment. Roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. You will work alongside your team of co-workers and our qualified instructors and together you will tend the ground, plant the seeds, watch the growth and, finally, harvest the fruits (and vegetables) of your labour.

Our programme of learning will begin at the start of the growing season and share each stage of growth through until harvest. We will introduce you to work and volunteer opportunities in related fields.
