We aim to bring people of all ages and abilities together, to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of community gardening and strengthen our connection with the natural world.
We run a range of projects and activities, each using the restorative qualities of gardening and nature to make a positive impact on people’s lives:
Our Garden Clubs: people of all ages and abilities coming together to tend and nurture our spaces. Community gardening, forest gardening, permaculture in practice, sharing the benefits of doing meaningful work together in nature.
Growing Ability: working with people with learning disabilities, autism, brain injury or chronic/severe mental ill health, we use social therapeutic horticulture and skills training to promote connection, personal growth and resilience.
Branching Out: an opportunity for young people aged 16-25 with additional needs, to gain horticultural skills and work/life experience in a supported therapeutic environment
New Shoots: for people suffering from anxiety, stress or depression, this is a six week project, one half day a week, aimed at improving health and wellbeing and reducing social isolation.
Family Forest School: nature-based confidence-building activities for families with children aged 3-12
Triangle Tribe: bushcraft for wellbeing, for families with teens aged 12-16, neurodiversity inclusive
Community events, walks and workshops: focused on building resilience, bringing people together, valuing the natural world and learning about food growing, foraging, gardening, nature-based arts and crafts and low impact living.
