We would like to officially inform all
interested parties that The Walled Garden Project (Charity
Number 1108757) will be closing down as from 31st July 2021.
We are proud that we have successfully
run The Walled Garden Project for 18 years. In that time we have
served to change the lives of many adults and young people
through education and social interaction. This would not have
been possible without the support of many Charitable Trusts that
have helped us financially, the hard work of dedicated Staff and
Volunteers, our devoted
Trustees and many enthusiastic friends and family members. Many
thanks go to you all.
At The Walled Garden Project we offer horticulture, gardening
skills, woodland conservation and rural crafts to people who need
space and meaningful activities away from the more formal educational
We are a registered centre for the delivery
of the 'John Muir Award'. This course is achievable by all and its
ethos is based around four main principles: Discovery,
Conservation and Sharing.
We work closely with schools who may require us to deliver accredited
courses such as ASDAN,
We also offer an 'On School Site' package. Most schools have
a garden patch or small plot of unused land; Working with your staff
and students we can turn this into a unique learning experience,
covering several curriculum areas. The added bonus is you are saving
on transport and extra staffing costs too.
Adults in receipt of Personal Independent Payments (PIP) or Direct
Payments can access us on a daily basis. We have small groups running
on a Monday and Wednesday.
Our staff*are qualified and experienced in teaching and supporting
students with mild and moderate learning difficulties, special educational
needs and emotional and behavioural difficulties.
*All staff are DBS checked..
