Hope Therapeutic Garden

At Hope Therapeutic Garden, which met weekly in Sparkbrook, we have always strived to give members a sense of belonging and feeling loved. Many have suffered trauma in their lives or have insecure social and financial situations. During the lockdown we are trying to keep in contact with members in new innovative ways . We have been making deliveries to members to enable 'Growing at Home' and also have begun a programme of Walking in the Park' visiting local parks to learn plant ID and foraging skills – please look at our page for more information.

Cockfield’s Glebe Garden

This project aims to work with children, young people, families and older people to bring together the community to improve the church garden back into a venue that can be enjoyed by all of the community. The garden will be somewhere the community can come together to improve the space, reduce isolation through the process of improving it, and create a safe space outdoors for the isolation of all to be reduced in the future.

Through the gardening work and intergenerational elements of this project we will see a younger generation learning about gardening and interactions between generations that have spent their lives in Cockfield.

C2C Grows

C2C Social Action is a Northamptonshire based Christian Charity that offers a range of support to individuals at any stage of the Criminal Justice System by inspiring and motivating them to take personal responsibility for their behaviour, in order to reduce re-offending.

In September 2020, C2C Social Action acquired a fantastic allotment plot and set up a project called C2C Grows. The project is run by a newly recruited Outdoor Learning Support Worker and offers horticultural activities to male and female service users.
