We are a charity that uses gardening to improve the well-being of people with mental or physical illness, learning disabilities and neurological conditions.
We offer social and therapeutic horticulture for mental health and well being; working with individuals with mental health conditions, physical or learning disabilities, sensory loss, autism and other neurological conditions.
In the safe environment of the Black Mountains College hill top farm campus, we provide physical and mental rehabilitation, bolster self worth and confidence, whilst offering social inclusion and a sense of well being through a variety of gardening and craft activities.
The horticultural setting gives purpose and direction in the form of work and the discussions and activities allow people to engage in something positive and life affirming. Horticulture can provide physical benefits through exercise and can create new skills and a feeling of empowerment.
