The Vanson Centre

Green Futures is based at the Vanson Centre on Bradley Road, a former plant nursery which used to be North East Lincolnshire Council’s primary source of bedding plants and trees for its municipal planting and floral displays.

Green Futures took over the site in 2009 holding a 25 year lease with NELC.

With the support and hard work of staff and volunteers the site has been transformed into an exciting and welcoming growing environment with 4 polytunnels, a green house, growing areas, small orchard, wildlife pond and woodland area.

The core function of the site is to providing a community garden that can be accessed by the community to promote gardening and horticulture activities.

We believe that a range of beneficial activities which involve, empower and enable people in the wider community, particularly those who live in areas of social deprivation, will help to improve our collective quality of life.
