Life at No.27 Adult Allotment Therapy – Northamptonshire
The first site based in the heart of the country, Northamptonshire is now open! If you are local to Towcester, struggling with your mental health and would like a way to build your confidence, please speak to your GP or get in touch to request a space and find out more information.
It’s all totally free and you don’t need any equipment, we provide all the basics to get you started. As part of the year long programme, you will be able to tend your own allotment anytime you like and will have to attend at least one or two therapy sessions at week with myself, a trained therapist.
Come along, have a chat and let’s see if you would like to join our allotment community.
Since gaining a small allotment at ‘Life at No.27’ my mental health and general well being has never been so good. The opportunity to work with a piece of land and turn it into a sustainable food source has been fantastic. I have planted and sowed seeds and week by week watched them turn into a full meal for my family and I. It has given me head space and perspective which no medication could and I am so grateful for this.Anonymous, Life at No.27 allotment holder
