Growing Space - Terence Gardens
Our site at Terence Gardens is one of our newest sites and has undergone a tremendous transformation thanks to the hard work of all on site. You will find a decked area, a memorial garden area, an art studio, a site café and a wood workshop; our 25-foot polytunnel will also help extend the growing season!
The site offers the opportunity to spend some time outdoors, whether that be exerting physical energy, or taking time to relax from everyday pressures. There is the opportunity to get involved in horticulture, art, craft, woodwork, or the café, where participants can also work towards accredited and non accredited qualifications.
We offer a variety of creative woodwork or art and craft activities that participants and volunteers can get involved in, and we love getting ideas for future activities too. We vary these activities using as many natural objects as possible, such as wooden mobiles, wooden love spoons, painting on slate, spray painting and other craft activities.
Whilst supporting participants, we are also making this a sustainable project that can benefit the local and wider community. There is the intention to create an onsite shop that will sell some amazing crafts created by some VERY talented participants and volunteers, as well as a plant shop where you can buy your garden seeds and cuttings. Staff are also working towards offering healthy fruit and veg to the local community.
Look out for future items made for sale in our social enterprise shops.
