Watch Us Grow is a voluntary organisation, charity and social enterprise based in Cumbernauld. The organisation was established in 1999 with the aim of helping people with support needs lead more fulfilling lives. They use their garden facilities in Palacerigg Park to provide horticultural therapy, helping people build confidence, self esteem and employability skills, supported by a small number of staff and local volunteers.
HND Film and Television students, Daryl Devine and Hannah Knowles, were tasked with filming on location at the Watch Us Grow garden and shop at Palacerigg and shooting an interview with Watch Us Grow’s general manager Anne McCulloch, who gives some background to the organisation in the film.
“It is particularly satisfying for our students in HN Film and Television to create and produce promotional content for third sector charities like “Watch Us Grow”.
Organisations like this often struggle to find the funds to produce filmed promotional content. Short films like these can offer different viewpoints around an issue and give social enterprises such as these a much needed promotional platform for their endeavours.”
-Michael Grant, Film & Television Lecturer.
