Life at No.27 has successfully grown over the last 3 years from a small blog – changing the stereotype, inspiring all ages and reaching thousands of people. Now, the next chapter is here, creating a non-profit organisation built with passion at its core and designed to change lives.
The initiative launched in 2019, positions gardening and grow your own as an alternative therapy option for people of all ages to access via self referral, GPs, psychiatrists and local councils, through the use of allotments.
Life at No.27 Community Allotments
The first site perfectly based in the heart of the country, Northamptonshire is due to open in May 2019. If you are in this area and feeling isolated, without purpose and/or want a way to build your confidence independently, please get in touch to be allocated a space or find out more information. It’s all totally free and you don’t need any equipment!
As more details and sites are available, I will share them with you here.
Need more structure and want to build your gardening knowledge alongside an experienced gardener? Then the buddy programme is for you!
