Seed of Hope is a Recovery based Social and Therapeutic Horticulture programme for people with mental health problems.
It is a co operative venture with Bridgwater College.
We are based in The Walled Gardens of Cannington and across the Cannington campus including Cannington Community Orchard.
Regular sessions use the elements intrinsic to horticulture-
- Increased light levels.
- Being in outdoors nature.
- Nurturing living plants and environments.
- Working as a team towards common goals.
- Growing and eating seasonal produce.
As well as Recovery group sessions built into the day, to improve mental health and well being.
Participants also have the opportunity to gain a level one qualification in practical horticultural skills if they wish to do so.
The Seed of Hope programme has been designed based on research, experience and the guidance of our service users.
