Location

Situation

The individual’s families and friends will visit and use the garden , and the staff and care workers would use the area on a day to day basis. Plants will be grown by the individuals and all the vegetables produced will support the charity and the local food bank for the homeless. The project will tackle anti social behaviour on the streets, by keeping the individuals occupied during the spring and summer days. The project will be physical, it will give a good feel factor, remove stress and also time spent on the project will remove boredom from the teenagers. We Hope the garden project would influence the teenagers to respect the environment and also feel rewarded for their efforts.
