What we do

We provide an island of rest and/or recuperation in the midst of a troubled world.

 

We welcome visitors who can come and enjoy the walled garden with us as they wish.

 

We offer help and assistance to those in need including the homeless and the disadvantaged.  Some of our volunteers have or have had drink and/or drug problems.

 

We provide support and help by encouraging them to come and learn how to operate as a team and how to garden with us. We build up their self confidence.

 

With the help of a local College, we provide courses and work related activity groups that result in qualifications that are used to assist each person in their expertise, their enjoyment of life and, most importantly, in their search for work. 

 

All who come to us remark on the peaceful and happy atmosphere enjoyed in our garden.
