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.  Our discipline is called social and therapeutic horticulture.

We offer our Earthworkers work experience and informal training in horticulture, ecology and conservation, small-scale construction, wood work and crafts. 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.
