"When you plant something, you invest in a beautiful future amidst a stressful, chaotic and, at times, downright appalling world...By becoming in tune with the seasons of growth and fall, preparation and harvest you make your mind and body happier and healthier. By having a direct stake and involvement with the process of plants growing, of having your hands in the soil and tending it carefully and with love, your world and everyone’s else’s world too, becomes a better place." Monty Don 


 Our Residents have indeed had chaotic pasts. Training in horticulture, gardening and landscaping will be so beneficial to their physical and state of mind. Some have experienced homelessness, poverty, addictions, prison, family breakdowns, abuse and this project is the perfect place to restore some calm and learn new skills.


The money raised will be spent in setting up a good quality horticultural area.. We will buy a poly tunnel, and plants etc


Every person who comes to Gilead will have the opportunity to learn gardening skills, which will improve their physical and mental health.  https://www.gilead.org.uk.
