Growing with Grace is a social enterprise run as a co-operative (an employee-owned business). Social enterprises are “competitive businesses, owned and trading for a social purpose. They seek to succeed as businesses by establishing a market share and making a profit. Social Enterprises combine the need to be successful businesses with social aims. They emphasise the long-term benefits for employees, consumers and the community.”
We aimed for Sustainable Agriculture:
Centred on two-acres of greenhouses, at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this unique operation is a valuable organic production resource. Based on an ethos of ‘local food for local people’ the greenhouses help fill the hungry-gap by extending the growing season, we offer a range of organic vegetables, fruit and dry goods.
