Geon Training Solutions believe that people everywhere deserve places to treasure – whether it’s a bench for quiet reflection, a place to grow fresh fruit and veg, or an open space to move and play – connecting with nature has never been more important in helping us feel alive. Especially during the long months of the pandemic.

Geon Training Solutions believe that people everywhere deserve places to treasure – whether it’s a bench for quiet reflection, a place to grow fresh fruit and veg, or an open space to move and play – connecting with nature has never been more important in helping us feel alive. Especially during the long months of the pandemic.

In the local Tees area there are many neglected green spaces crying out for some love and attention. From disused community gardens and pocket parks to overgrown allotments, many community spaces are in desperate need of nurturing.

They have teamed up with Community Ventures (CVL) and Middlesbrough Voluntary Development Agency (MVDA) to deliver the Community Glow Up, an initiative with no end date or expiry. An initiative that’s here to stay, with an endless list of green space renovation projects. The programme runs for 1 day a week over 5 weeks and moves around different projects across Tees Valley.

Their first Sowing and Growing project within the Community Glow Up series is set to go live next week and is suitable for people from all walks of life to get involved with. If you’re currently a resident in Tees Valley, unemployed and were aged 19+ by 31.8.21

. Aged 19 years or over by 31.8.2021.
. All learners must have been residing in the UK or EU
for the past three years and non-EU/UK citizens must
