Rainbow Garden is a community garden organisation, assisting the local and vulnerable individuals and their respective relatives, dependents and/or carers in North Hull.
A registered charity (reg. charity no. 1113564), they offer the opportunity for people all ages to grow salads, herbs, and vegetables. Clients/volunteers also help with the general maintenance of all wildlife areas. They also encourage beneficiaries to maintain garden furniture and benches. Support is given to all to contribute to this project; as well as gardening they hold various creative and crafting activities within the garden for children and their families, often in collaboration with other local groups.
The organisation has experience of facilitating engagement in activities and communication, for adults with learning difficulties, people suffering from physical and mental health disorders, families, children, women, and people with mental and physical disabilities. Carers and relatives also find respite in the garden as a relaxing space with a supportive community.
Rainbow Community Garden have an allotment site that has 6 mini plots that are rented for a small fee to families and individuals who want to have a go at growing vegetables themselves. They will also happily provide tools and advice. There is also a larger communal plot on which Potatoes, Sweetcorn, Pumpkins etc. are grown and that gets shared amongst plot holders and volunteers.
They also maintain a communal area that is adjacent to the garden and an Island bed in Levisham Close where the garden is situated.
They pride themselves on being inclusive, friendly, and always willing to share knowledge and skills.
