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 creating a Social Enterprise built with passion at its core and designed to change lives.
The initiative launching in 2019 aims to position 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.

January 2019 Update
2018 was a busy year, juggling working with developing the Life at No.27 Social Enterprise in the background. Engaging with leading psychiatrists, nurses and teachers to gain insight and training, in order to design effective programmes that will have a measurable impact.
I began sharing my plans across the country with you and industry. Since then the initiative has fortunately attracted interest from amazing volunteers, companies and retailers looking to get involved up and down the country.
More details on how the programmes will work and where everyone of all ages will be able to get help from Spring 2019 will be shared soon.
Note to nurseries, garden centres and product brands: If you would more information on the brand sponsorship packages available, starter packs and getting involved, just email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The starter packs are slowly coming together but I am still on the look out for more tools, both full size and hand size. If you help, please get in touch.
Following advice, I have also set up a GoFundMe page which I would love you to check out here. 100% of all donations will go towards the setting up and running of the Non Profit Organisation.
Thank you so much in advance x
