Growing Lives, a project of Sydenham Garden, is based at the De Frene Market Garden site.

The project supports people suffering from mental distress and physical ill-health. It aims to improve well-being through social, therapeutic and vocational horticultural sessions, as well as offering an opportunity to achieve Open College Network qualifications. With new, transferable skills and increased self-confidence, participants' employability also increases.

The one-acre site is managed in sympathy with wildlife and includes raised beds, a polytunnel, orchard, an earth oven and solar fruit drier.

Capital Growth garden: 467

Garden Manager: David
