Progress of our FREE training workshops

Our short training workshops continue to be delivered on the garden site with a current total of 120 attendances from 67 people across 12 days throughout April to September. Attendances include staff and clients from New Roots, The Croftlands Trust, MIND, Sacred Heart and St Georges schools along with many residents of the area.

Comments from participants include:

“Well worth coming and what a lovely haven in the middle of town. I didn’t know it was here.”
“The whole day was great!”
“I liked helping others and meeting different people. It was a warm, inviting and friendly environment.”
“This place changed my life, my attitudes and outlooks are all changing for the better.”
“I would like to come on another course to learn how to cook healthy meals like we have done today.

Funding to enable the FREE training workshops has been provided from a grant awarded by People’s Health Trust, using money raised by Healthable Community Interest Company through The Health Lottery.
