The Seed Box aims to improve the social, emotional and physical health of its co-workers through horticultural and outdoor activities.
As a Social Enterprise, all profits of the company will be used for the benefit of the users.
The Seed Box provides a day service for adults with additional support needs,who are presently unable to work in mainstream employment.
TL Ced Box provides meaningful work related activities for its co-workers on a daily basis.
This promotes and encourages independence and social rehabilitation as well as providing training in life skills to enable co-workers to move on to employment, sheltered or otherwise.
We are able to provide formal recognition of new skills through RCHS Grow & Learn Award. We hope to also provide SVQ / City & Guilds Awards and The John Muir Award.
Activities mainly involve horticulture:
Other activities will include:
Any produce grown can be used by co-workers for their own use, as well as being sold to local businesses and through a Veg Bag Scheme. Hanging baskets, floral tubs, potted herbs, wildflowers and craft items such as bird boxes, squirrel feeders and planters are also sold.
The income from the sale of these items provides opportunities for outings to gardens. It is also used to arrange for visiting specialists to provide art, yoga, music and craft classes, or for any other subject that co-workers express an interest in.
