How we run
The Garden is open three days a week; Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, offering a morning and afternoon session each day. Each session has a team of six to eight support volunteers, supporting roughly 12 supported volunteers. As everyone attends the same session each week, there is a great opportunity to gain confidence and form friendships.
Supported volunteers may choose to work independently alongside others or together in a group activity either in the garden, the poly-tunnel or our large workshop where a variety of crafts are available. They are also welcome simply to sit and enjoy the peace and beauty of this nurturing space.
Each session starts and finishes by gathering together around the table to share tea, coffee and cake. Cake is an important ingredient in each session!
