We're raising funds to support a gardening club which will educate, inspire and empower participants and volunteers by growing fresh produce

PATT stands for Plant A Tree Today and sums up perfectly what we do.  Changing the world one tree at a time, at PATT Foundation we work with communities to create woodlands and forests to help combat climate change for a better future. We’ve planted around the world to help areas fight back against deforestation, create wildlife habitat and build natural environments.

It’s not just about growing and planting trees for climate change though. PATT Foundation works to support local communities by helping people gain new skills and learn more about the nature around us.  This is where we're hoping for your support...

PATT Foundation is creating a new gardening club that will benefit the community by creating a space in our Preston site where people can come together to learn new skills.

We want this to be a collaborative effort between residents, community organisations and businesses.  We will create a project that will support those who are socially isolated or want to volunteer to learn new skills and to look at ways to navigate the cost of living crisis.  The skills they learn will enable them to grow their own produce at home.

We anticipate growing more produce than needed which will enable us to supply local foodbanks with fresh vegetables and produce which is often not available.

We'll also be growing plants and flowers for sale, looking at how the gardening club can go on to be self sustaining by selling some produce in order to generate income.

The funds we raise will go directly towards supporting this group.  You'll be funding compost, gardening equipment, seeds and more.
