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." British Bankers Association.
We were established on four principles:
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. The Organic Shop and home delivery bag scheme supply a range of organic vegetables, fruit and dry goods.
By combining shared ownership, shared decision making and salaries based on need this co-operative provides equitable employment.
The co-operative seeks to provide a working environment that respects the individual, be they a member or customer. Spirituality in the workplace recognises 'that of God' in each person in a caring environment of mutual respect.
We aim to promote the sale of fairly traded imported goods in our Organic Shop in order to support farmers and growers in developing countries.
