A Place to Grow - Why not join our allotment group?
St.Helens Mind’s Allotment is a safe and welcoming environment for people who are experiencing mental health difficulties and who would benefit from fresh air, gentle exercise and company. The allotment is at Cabbage Hall Lane, off Windle Hall Drive.
People who attend the allotment can enjoy activities; such as weeding, potting, digging, painting and planning ahead. You can also share ideas and knowledge. You might also like to visit to just enjoy the environment, relax with a cuppa and have a chat or simply have some peace and quiet.
There is enough space to work alone in peace if you prefer or you can join in with others and enjoy your time together. There are facilities for a tea or coffee and there is even a toilet! The poly tunnel provides shelter in bad weather.
It is easy to get involved: referrals for the Allotment Group can be made by individuals, health professionals, family, or other support workers. The allotment is accessible for people using wheelchairs and there are raised beds to enable easier reach.
