Charities and Groups

Our site has been designed to facilitate therapeutic horticulture and has a wide range of resources.  Zoe, who leads the project is a qualified horticultural therapist and can provide bespoke services to support different groups.  We welcome people who are experiencing difficulties into our community where they will receive our support and be given a chance to work in nature.  Organisations who currently access us include Phase One, a hostel in Brighton, Know Dementia, as part of their Green Moments, Worthing Churches Homeless Project and Just Life, who support people vulnerable to homelessness in Brighton.  If you are interested in accessing our resource please This email address is being protected from spambots.

Supporting us:

We have very little income and as such rely on funding and sponsorship to develop our site and the therapeutic work we undertake with people experiencing difficulty.  Whilst providing funding is in no way essential to joining us on site, we would be very grateful if you could think of ways in which you might be able to help support us financially or with resource.  We are open to making joint funding applications to support your group on site.
