The project is for adults with a mild learning disability to grow vegetables, soft fruit and cut flowers. We also have some ex- battery hens which have created a lot of interest for the project, and eggs to collect for tea!
It is a relaxed day with no pressure on people to "progress" to certain standards. No experience of gardening is required, it is just a nice day in a peaceful setting.
The project is a small, (due to limited space, up to four people a day) leisure gardening activity with support worker in attendance at all times. This is not a commercial venture, all produce grown is shared out between the people attending to take home for dinner! There is also a toilet facility on site, (we drink quite a lot of tea!).
The Project is Accredited by Suffolk County Council.
