Agrivert have become the proud suppliers of compost for a Witney based project called Dig ‘n’ Grow, developed by Guideposts Trust. The project is based upon the principles of social and therapeutic horticulture which aims to encourage all groups of people with learning and physical disabilities, mental health issues, older people, people with dementia, challenging behaviour etc. to engage in the project.
Within the Bromag Industrial estate, an oasis is being created, with the involvement of the gardens. This will be the hub of the project as its therapeutic garden. In addition, there will be the opportunity for allotment growing, as well as taking part in maintaining the gardens of Witney hospital.
The programme will run full day or half day sessions following a seasonally led calendar of horticultural and craft activities, adapted to each individual.
