How you’ll make an impact

Your contributions will go towards helping to deliver horticultural lessons and engagement with the natural world for people experiencing severe mental ill health. Referrals attend the garden once a week and learn how to grow and sustain an organic garden throughout the year. For many this is a life-changing opportunity to learn skills they can use to help manage their mental health for the rest of their lives. The nonprofit also offers online learning opportunities for those beneficiaries not yet able to return to the gardens due to the ongoing pandemic.

This nonprofit transforms vacant land in deprived urban areas into hubs for community engagement through horticulture, design, workshops, training and events – improving physical health, mental health, wellbeing and community cohesion. They provide quality education, training, employment and social enterprise initiatives that enable people who experience mental health issues to overcome barriers, fulfill their potential and participate fully in their community.
