Award days are the best days! This community garden is now officially a ‘Garden of Sanctuary’.
Hempen Farm’s Growing Solidarity project, based in Oxfordshire, brings the community together with people seeking sanctuary to grow, harvest and cook home grown produce.
This project celebrates both our shared humanity and our shared natural world – this award is incredibly well deserved. Congratulations!
For those seeking asylum in the UK, green spaces can offer vital and unique opportunities to find community, improve mental and physical health and to learn and share skills.
Our network works together to support and inspire more of the UK’s community growing spaces to become places of sanctuary.
