The Community Market Garden is for men and women who are experiencing homelessness or who are vulnerably-housed, as well as those with mental health difficulties.

Please give Ian Bond (the supervisor) a call on 07860 695 141 or email to have an informal chat about ways you could get involved.

You could spend time in our large beautiful garden growing and tending plants and vegetables and/or taking part in indoor creative activities. Many people have found the garden to be an oasis of calm with opportunities to try out new activities in a safe place. We have polytunnels, growing beds, a small woodland with a fire pit and a large workshop. Activities include painting, drawing, poetry reading, creative writing, music, woodworking, working with textiles, lino printing and fireside sessions. A hot meal is provided Monday to Thursday and is the chance to socialise in a small group. There is no charge for this service.


We have service users from GROW, YMCA, Guideposts Trust and Watford & Three Rivers Trust ‘Together Timebank’.

Please contact the garden supervisor, Ian Bond, if you would like to find out more or make an appointment to see the garden and complete a referral form. Please email, complete the form below or telephone 07860 695 141.
