HORTICULTURE

Gardening can be a therapeutic and rewarding activity.

It can help rebuild strength and provide purposeful activity for someone coping with a difficult period in their life.

Gardening activities range from soil preparation, the sowing of seeds through to harvesting of a variety of fruit and vegetables, which we use for cookery and crafts.This teaches an understanding of what is needed for plants to thrive and grow and how we can grow our own food.

We have a composting system for waste materials we cannot use, promoting a zero waste policy and how best to use every product of nature.

We have a large indoor workshop and a poly tunnel which we work in when the weather is bad.
