Mind in Haringey runs a number of wellbeing activities aimed at helping those suffering from mental illness. One of its flagship programmes is its therapeutic gardening project. A large plot of waste ground surrounding its site in the London Borough of Haringey was reclaimed and converted into an allotment three years ago. Twice a week, service users are guided and supported to engage in a range of gardening and site husbandry tasks. This is followed by a lunch cooked on site and depending on the season including ingredients grown by the service users themselves. The activity provides the service users with a quiet place to come away from their generally chaotic lives to work together with others in order to nurture, grow and share in a positive experience.
