Inverness Botanic Gardens » GROW Project

Over a half of the Garden area is lovingly looked after by the GROW Project, an opportunity for practical horticulture for adults with a learning disability.

The GROW Project is a vocational gardening project, with a beautiful, productive and wildlife-friendly garden open to the public, created and maintained mainly by adults with learning disabilities. Offering sessions of gardening activities all year round, rain or shine, the Grow Project aims to build personal confidence, physical health, independence and wellbeing amongst participants. The project promotes horticultural happiness and social inclusion, aided by an amazing team of community volunteers.

Depending on the season, you will find fruit trees, vegetable plots, wild flowers, bulbs, herb beds, a bug hotel to encourage insect life, and much much more. For children the wooden bears at the tee pee and Jungle Path are looking forward to welcoming you!
