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 ibond@newhope.org.uk 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.
