Let it Grow – stress free gardening project

Are you or someone you know experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, or social isolation?

Do you live in Mid Suffolk?

‘Let it Grow’ is a relaxed and therapeutic approach to learning the basics about horticulture and the environment. It is organised by the Community Interest Company Wild Heritage Suffolk who currently use the four-acre site on the Langham Estate.

Dating back around 300 years, the walled garden includes a restored kitchen garden, orchards, and a wildlife rich meadow.

The project will operate with half-day sessions (both morning and afternoon) each Tuesday through until September. Priority booking for the scheme will be given to those experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, or social isolation, and who live in the Mid Suffolk district and nearby villages of West Suffolk.

This project is funded by Mid Suffolk District Council and Suffolk Community Foundation through the Pargiter Trust fund, and is completely free to participants.

If you are interested, please contact your NHS social prescriber at your GP surgery either at Woolpit, Botesdale, Stanton, Ixworth, or Lifelink Bury.
