Urban Growth was established during 2013 by founder Bruno who is very passionate about the field of environmental education. With the support of a couple of staff members and volunteers, Urban Growth offers Horticulture Level 1 training to people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and mental health issues. The course aims to teach people employability skills and contribute to the transformation of gardens for individuals, organisations and communal housing. Urban Growth was successful in obtaining funding for the course, so people who live in certain areas of Southwark can train for free. After completing the training, they may go on to start their own enterprise with the support of Urban Growth and Community Catalysts.
