We operate in the stunning natural environment of a walled garden in Dorking with views to Box Hill.
Run entirely by volunteers we offer gardening, crafting and the opportunity to learn new skills in a safe and friendly space.

Who we help
We support people with a wide variety of need due to physical or mental health conditions, learning disabilities and isolation due to various circumstances.
It is important that people are well enough to manage their own condition and ask for the help they need.
We take referrals from agencies and GPs, and it is possible to self-refer.
