We have incorporated permaculture principles into our garden to preserve the balance of nature and often use companion planting so we can manage pests without the need for the pesticides which are so commonly used elsewhere. Our no-dig methods and use of green manures maintain the soil integrity, allowing the vital mycellium to remain intact to transport sugars to the plants. In the meadows outside the food garden there are over 100 different species of plant like wild orchids. Many animals like Skylarks and other birds also live their lives and breed in the sky, ground, hedges, trees and meadows around the food garden. We have an active badger sett and regular fox visitors as well as hedgehogs and slow-worms.

Our aim and mission
Unlocking potential and supporting people to overcome life challenges.
One in 4 of us experience mental health problems every year. We believe that nobody should face mental health problems on their own, experience stigma or discrimination. We all have the right to be well both mentally and physically.
What we do
We provide services and support that focuses on people’s needs to regain their power and strength, lead a well-balanced life, maintain and increase their feeling of well-being. We accept referrals from GPs, CMHRSs and other charities, service providers. And people can self-refer as well.
Why we do it
We all feel less than fine at some time in our lives and often we can feel lonely, stressed, bored or at our wits end. We are not medics, not trying to sell you anything and not on a mission to convert you, we are just genuinely interested in making your world a better place.
Time to Share
Building Healthy Communities Together
Timebanking is a way for people to come together to help others and help themselves at the same times. Participants 'deposit' their time in the Time Bank by giving practical help and support to others and are able to withdraw their time when they need something done themselves.
Timebanking is open to people of all ages, abilities, ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
