Grow 19 Project

Grow 19 and Kent CRP

Last year Kent CRP worked with Five Acre Wood School to redevelop the front of Snodland Station. Following the success of this project and the community links between us, it made perfect sense to work with Grow 19 this year. Particularly as some of the students from Five Acre Wood have now enrolled at Grow19.

Grow 19 is a Further Education College for learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. The college was set up by Five Acre Wood to support students between 19 and 25. All learners have an Education Health Care Plan.


Planters at Wateringbury Station

One of the existing planters built about 10 years ago had fallen apart. Grow 19 were up for the challenge. In February the students met with Kent CRP to discuss the project in more detail and identify what could be achieved. Grow19 planned to replace the damaged planter and then build an additional 5 new planters.  On 17th March 2020, phase 1 of the project took place and 6 new planters were made and filled with soil.
