We were delighted to meet CEO Paul Farmer, Mind and CEO Paul Streets, Lloyds TSB Community Foundation and show them around the Stepping Stones garden nursery, whilst sharing our positive experiences and benefits from attending the project.
Lloyds TSB Community Foundation has supported the project for the past 2 years, enabling service users to learn about gardening in addition to be supported in accessing further training, volunteering and employment. Raining heavily, we all put on our wellie boots to look at the progress of the new Tilbury Shed project based on an allotment site. This project brings people with and without mental health problems together through their shared interest in horticulture. There are male only groups and male/female groups currently running with a new women only group coming soon.
