About the Event

A maximum number of 12 members is invited, on a first come/first served  basis, and attendees should bring snacks, lunch and hot and cold drinks  with them on the day. A room for drinking coffee and a loo will be  available on site, but parking at the venue is limited, so please  car-share if possible.

As these days will be untutored, and the society is not paying a fee for  the use of either venue, these events will be free of charge.  Members  should contact the UDAS membership secretary if they wish to  participate, and as these outings are likely to be very popular, should  contact the secretary asap if they subsequently find they cannot attend  on the day, so as to enable those on the waiting list to take their  place.

About The Seed Box

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:

  • Growing vegetables and fruit
  • Maintaining shrub borders
  • Sowing seeds and propagation

Other activities will include:

  • Maintenance of tools
  • Nature and wildlife activities
  • Conservation and Crafts
  • Visits from specialists in various  related areas

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.
