"It is becoming more and more evident within society today that not enough people are going outside. This reveals a gateway into a grim future for the next generations as well as the current. Physical illness, mental illness and a fragmented society.

NCS is a young persons' organisation working with Growing Redhill to combat a dying community. We have raised funds for them and intend to complete a campaign day in Reigate Priory Park on the 3rd August so as to raise awareness and provide Growing Redhill's information in an attempt to end the "reclusivity dilemma".

Growing Redhill have funded projects such as the "Smelly Wellie" project by Welcare in Redhill to get children under 5 years outside and understanding the benefits of eating healthily, to create a more physically well world.

They also fund organisations to get those living in isolation - such as the elderly and disabled - outside into the fresh air. This is a huge step forward in improving mental health and bringing our society closer together.

Help us campaign for a better, brighter, greener future."

Team Reiss - National Citizenship Service/ The Challenge - August 2018

Why pay high prices for naturally grown food when you can produce your own?

Growing Redhill is a community gardening group based in the Redhill area of Surrey. You don't have to be a skilled gardener to join, just enthusiastic! Since 2008 we've been helping people to 'grow their own' successfully in the Redhill area. We also maintain the flower planters at Merstham Station. We apologise for the current state of the planters, which is due to a contractual delay.

Previous events

There was a bumper crop of apples locally in the autumn of 2017. So we went picking with kind permissions from The Feathers Pub and a landowner on Church Hill, Merstham. Some of the fruit went to a local food group.

National Citizenship Scheme - Aug takeover!

The NCS Perham Team took over from 19-26 August 2017! Nine young people from as far afield as Croydon and Nutfield planned a sponsorship day, a volunteering day and campaign day. They raised over £230 for Growing Redhill's community projects. You can use the 'Donate online' link at the bottom of this page to give whatever you can.

Welcome Perham Team!
