For over 25 years it has offered a safe space where people with support needs and the local community can get hands-on experience of gardening, gain a sense of inclusion and receive the benefits of horticulture and other ecotherapy activities.


This helps those in need to combat isolation, develop valuable employment skills, gain qualifications and contribute to a greener, healthier, happier community.

We are open for sales on Tuesdays from 10am until 1pm, and on Friday afternoon on 11th and 18th December.

We have a lovely range of plants, herbs, garden crafts and preserves, including winter-flowering bulbs, garden honey, handmade jams and chutneys.
