Sunnyside  Gardens

The Sunny Grow Project developed an area of waste ground belonging to Sunnyside Gardens into a growing site with improved soil and growing conditions, attracting insects and wildlife. The aim was to introduce local vulnerable adults to environmental improvement offering horticultural therapy  Helping to look after the local environment created a sense of ownership, purpose and achievement for everyone involved as well as providing exercise and fresh air to support improved mental health. 
The project raised the self esteem and confidence of participants, providing them with the opportunity to form new friendships and improve social skills through team working in a safe and
accessible environment.
