MindFood is an ecotherapy social enterprise based in Ealing that supports people from West London with mental health issues to improve their wellbeing and be equipped with new skills through growing and selling food.
We do this through:
- Offering a range of nature-based, therapeutic courses that help people to manage and improve their wellbeing
- Equipping people with practical skills in how to grow food and horticulture
- Providing opportunities to build new social connections and social capital through our courses and through selling our ‘good mood food’ at farmers markets
