What we do

We support people with learning disabilities - known as our Earthworkers – alongside our wonderful volunteers to manage 3.5 acres of beautiful eco-gardens in St Albans.

We cultivate fruit, vegetables and ornamental plants using organic principles, and build wildlife habitats. By providing purposeful activity, we develop skills, build confidence, boost health and well-being. We champion social inclusion and sustainability. And 2020 is our 25th anniversary!

How to buy our produce

We sell fruit and vegetables, herbs, plants, crafts and our own apple juice and honey. Find out more here.

Also look out for our seasonal events throughout the year.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

The Earthworks site is currently CLOSED until further notice.

Click here for easy read information. 

On Friday 20th March the UK Government announced stricter interventions to reduce contact between individuals amidst the escalating risk. In line with Government guidance on social distancing, we have decided that the risk of transmission through social contact at Earthworks is too high for the vulnerable people we support, many of whom share their homes with older or otherwise vulnerable individuals. To protect the health of our Earthworkers we are temporarily closing the Earthworks site effective from Monday 23rd March until further notice.

Thank you for supporting us to keep our Earthworkers safe!
