Our vision for our Gardening Group is to produce fresh seasonal herbs and vegetables, as well as flowers and plants.  Any crops which we grow can be sold to Clients, Staff at Weavers Croft and Independence Trust and also sold on the market stalls we run as part of engaging with the local community to reduce the stigma of poor Mental Health. Any funds raised from the sale of produce can then be re-invested in the gardening group.

Some of our clients have experience and expertise in horticulture, and they also know the benefit of finding a tranquil space in which to work alongside peers and create something really beautiful and productive. Growing vegetables and flowers is not only beneficial to their physical and mental health, but we also hope that taking part in the project will open up a whole new social connection for people.

The Weavers Garden Project every Tuesday from Weavers Croft, Field Road, Stroud, GL52HZ. 
If you know of anyone who may be interested in joining the Weavers Independence Project, or if you would like any further information, please call 01453 767999 or Email stroudhub@independencetrust.co.uk.

Hi Sue - great photo! Could you give little bit more information about what the Independence Gardening Trust does, and what volunteers you are looking for? I can then share the post on social media and hopefully get some response!
