Looking for a relaxed, inspiring urban setting for your next brainstorming session? Discover how the GIY movement started with one man’s ‘Road to Damascus’ moment in a supermarket. Realising some garlic he was about to buy had been imported from China, Michael Kelly was inspired to grow his own food and ultimately to create a movement that in 2018 will support over half a million people to grow their own food. This story of the potential of great ideas can be the inspiring backdrop for your next team meeting, away day or team building session.
Located just 1.5 hours from the M50, GROW HQ is the home of the GIY movement. Set on 3 acres of garden and woodland in urban Waterford, GROW HQ is a National Food Education Centre comprised of a café/bistro, cookery and growing school, shop and gardens. Most of the veg and fruit on our award-winning menu are grown by us on the site and the average journey from plot to plate is about 110 paces!
Whether you just need a unique venue for an inspiring day out of the office, fueled by the best of home-grown seasonal food, or want to include team building or idea-boosting activities in the garden, woods or cookery school, GROW HQ has it all.
We will happily cater for your meeting or event from our award winning cafe with a huge range of fresh, seasonal and delicious food to choose from. Breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages can all be provided. And we have plenty of homemade desserts and pastries too.
