- We provide individuals with structured appropriate therapeutic activities, at a pace suitable to their capabilities and in relation to their identified needs, personal choices and outcomes.
- Each individual is supported and encouraged to develop his/her potential and independence, in line with the benefits associated with horticultural therapy.
- People who use the service become involved in the project on a day to day basis, exercising flair, creativity and innovative solutions regarding the ability to generate income from growing produce. This produce is then sold to the people who live in our homes, where they are encouraged to consider healthy lifestyle choices and supported to cook with fresh ingredients where possible.
