NEW ESOL-FRIENDLY GROWING WITH MINDFOOD

May 6, 2022 | Uncategorized

MindFood are offering a new ESOL friendly gardening programme at Horsenden Farm – in our experience, nature is a universal language so we’ve decided to run a weekly session dedicated to those who don’t speak English as their first language.

It will be an opportunity to escape everyday pressures, reconnect with nature, do some food-growing (all levels of experience welcome!), learn about mental health self care, and take home some freshly harvested veg.

The sessions are part of a 3 year programme with City Bridge Trust, and our hope is that participants of these sessions will one day be able to lead MindFood sessions of their own as ‘experts by experience’. All MindFood session leaders started off as participants, so everything’s possible…even if it feels like a bit of a reach now 🌱🌿😀

Please find details of the weekly programme below –

Participants don’t have to get a referral: as with all our courses they can sign up individually here:
