Growing Places can deliver, to your door, a fresh box of locally produced vegetables and fruit. We are part of Realise Futures which is an award -winning social enterprise where people are at the heart of everything we do.
It’s a real team effort at Growing Places and one of the members of that team is Donna“I started at Growing Places in 2005 on a therapeutic placement. It has made me a lot more confident meeting different people. It feels really good to get a job and has made me feel really happy.
Donna has started helping out in the office recently, but usually works on the team that packs the fruit and vegetables. Part of her job is to check the quality and quantity of our vegetable boxes. Donna also goes out on the delivery round making sure our customers get their orders on time, thus making Donna a bit of a ‘Jack of all trades’.
This is Donna͛s first paid job and at Growing Places we are proud to give people who have been disadvantaged for whatever reason the opportunity to be able to fulfil their potential.
Don’t just take our word for it. The best advert for our business is the people who work in it. So over to you Donna…͚
‘If you want a Box of fresh and locally produced vegetables delivered to your door, then look no further than Growing Places. It’s a great place to work!
