Why do we run this service?
Gardening offers the health benefits of fresh air and gentle exercise. There is satisfaction in seeing things grow and the chance to socialise with others on a shared endeavour.
Some of the people we work with have come from rural and agricultural backgrounds and they welcome the chance to regain a connection with the land.
Who is this for?
Asylum seekers and refugees who are able to walk to the garden which is approximately 30 minutes from our offices.
