Winter is often seen as a time for rest and reflection. For many mammals it’s a time to make a nice warm den and hibernate for a few months, getting ready for the year ahead.
At Grow Heathrow, we’re often lured in to the traps of modern life – always doing, doing, doing and doing some more. This can all get a bit much and lead to burn out.
So, in an attempt to counter this, we’ve decided we’re going to hibernate for the month of February. This means we won’t be accepting any new volunteers for this period, in order to allow us to reflect on the past year, build the relationships within the already existing group and have a bit of a rest.
You’re still more than welcome, however, to visit us during the day, come to our workshops and events, and make suggestions for workshops for the coming months.
Also, in the first week of March – we’d love you to come and stay in order to help us get ready for our 6th Birthday celebrations!
Can you believe it?!! We’ve nearly made it to our 6th Birthday at Grow Heathrow!
To celebrate this amazing achievement there will be many a festivity on this fine first weekend of March, 4th-6th (and especially Saturday the 5th!)
Expect the usual…. cakes, music, dancing, skipped feasts, wellbeing, workshops, off-grid party and mischief…
and also the unusual…. Non-weddings (open to all), performance art, tree planting and more…
We are currently in the planning stages, and would really love to hear from people who would like to help shape this event – if you would like to offer a workshop, talk, performance…or anything that you think could contribute to the celebration do get in touch via:
