As part of the charity Milton Keynes Christian Foundation, Growing People is a social enterprise that produces delicious fruits and vegetables and pretty flowers that they sell to businesses and the community. More and more, it is interesting to see what kind of organizations are set up within larger organizations -- like this one -- and what kinds operate as independently run, even if they have support from various foundations and charities.
"We have a number of trainees and volunteers of varying ages, genders and backgrounds that come to help out on our peaceful plot of land," Growing People writes on its website. "One of the main purposes of Growing People is to develop the personal skills of each trainee, with benefits to employability, self-confidence, social skills, general life skills and personal development as a whole."
