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.
