The PEAT Project was set up in 2010 to help people from a wide range of backgrounds to improve their quality of life. Our aims are to support individuals to build friendships, confidence, skills and knowledge. On dedicated days we also support adults with mental illness or learning difficulties to improve their quality of life and to engage more widely with society.
The PEAT Project drop-in community garden offers a safe, quiet and respectful space in which to meet new people and learn new skills. With the help and support of friendly gardening enthusiasts and knowledgable leaders, it provides a supportive environment which aids confidence-building and self-esteem.
As a community garden project we teach how to grow vegetables – everything from sowing seeds, looking after the plants as they grow and finally picking, harvesting and then eating! Here you can work at your own pace and learn as you go.
Drop in on any volunteer day:
Tuesday – 10am to 3pm
Thursday – 10am to 3pm
We also offer sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. These sessions are pre-arranged and available to groups and individuals. Please contact us for further information on these sessions.
