We are a small but vital charitable initiative which relies on funding support to help us sustain our services & activities.
Since 2006, Growing People has been using Social and Therapeutic Horticulture to help local people with mental health conditions in North Hertfordshire to reclaim a sense of purpose and hopefulness, work towards recovery and reclaim their quality of life.
With your help, we can continue to provide this life-changing service. Your donation is more important than ever, as charities face increased financial pressure, while services like horticultural therapy sessions are needed even more. Many people come to us at a bleak and difficult time in their lives and we work hard to ensure that those who are most in need are able to attend, regardless of their financial position.
- £5 Will help pay for a bag of compost.
- £10 Will help pay for 5 packets of seeds for Gardeners to sow, bring on and plant out, learning new skills and gaining confidence in the process.
- £30 Will help pay for someone with a mental health condition, receive 3 hours of horticultural therapy.
- £50 Will help pay for 100 mini herb plants which our gardeners grow on and sell to raise money for Growing People.

Leave A Gift In Your Will
Sadly, we receive little state or formal funding, despite the fact there’s a growing need for our dedicated care and services.
One of the most profound ways you can support us long into the future is to leave a gift in your Will.
When considering the beneficiaries within your Will, please consider allocating Growing People and the support services it provides as a named recipient.
Buy Our Herbs
You can support us by purchasing our herbs on the herb bench from our site, available in the car park between the garden and The Sadie Centre throughout the growing season. The herbs are cared for and propagated by our Gardeners and volunteers, promoting new skills, building social connections, and growing self-confidence. All funds raised go directly to supporting our therapeutic work.
£2.00 for small plants OR as priced on our sales bench located at the car park on the Growing People's site.
Larger plants individually priced.
All proceeds go towards Growing People.
Visit Our Stall
We run a market stall at various times in the year where you can purchase Herbs and Hand-Crafted items, such as willow bird feeders.
