Sowing Seeds of Success

In 2021, we transformed redundant land into a functional community greenspace, with many food-producing plants seeded in the inaugural growing season with a wide variety of healthy produce including grapes, melons and watermelons grown right here in Croxteth!

Now we aim to deliver further improvements to the space and with the support of our beneficiaries and volunteers to prepare the kitchen garden for more successful harvests.

Partnered with Mysercough College and Faiths4Change, we are delivering Level 1 and Level 2 NVQ courses in horticulture - providing accredited training to wide audiences.

We have also won the kind support of The National Lottery's Together For Our Planet programme, to connect primary education age children to nature and gardening - alongside activities which engage young people (Year 10) in growing food sustainably, learning about healthy produce, nutrition, composting and climate literacy.

Learn Something New

Myerscough College, based in Croxteth Park have partnered with us to offer accredited qualifications in horticulture at the La Salle Kitchen Garden.

We support members of our commmunity to learn new skills, meet new people and open up pathways to new careers.

Anybody who wants to come onsite and help us grow crops whilst learning something new is able to - we run a volunteer programme and specific projects for young people and children.

Our aspiration is to work closely with our neighbours in Croxteth and Norris Green sharing with each other how to successfully grow food that will enrich our diets and enable us to save on our weekly food bill.

Because the Kitchen Garden is attached to a professional kitchen there will be opportunities to learn how to cook with the produce grown on the site. We will bring chefs who will demonstrate what you can do with the plants, herbs and fruits that we grow. Once established it will be an all-year round facility growing produce to cook in our kitchens and for people to prepare at home.
