Beaver Scouts growing project gets off the ground

With a £100 grant from HiB, a bit of help from parents and some sun & rain, the Beavers of the 2nd Horsham Scout Group were able to harvest peas, potatoes and carrots in July.

They obviously took great care in looking after the excellent vegetables and were excited to gather and eat their own crops.

Our aims (click to view)

We aim to:-

  • encourage horticultural excellence
  • community participation
  • environmental responsibility

    - within the boundaries of Horsham Town.

We will achieve this by:-

  • sponsorship
  • education
  • provision of floral displays
  • initiating and supporting environmental and horticultural projects
  • sustainable planting and landscape enhancement.

We are particularly keen to support new and exciting horticultural projects which create places for people to enjoy, such as the Human Nature Garden.
