About this project
MindFood is an Ealing-based community interest company that supports people with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and stress to improve their wellbeing through gardening and horticulture.
We run our courses from two sites in Ealing: on Tuesdays we’re at Horsenden Hill Farm near Perivale tube station, and on Fridays our sessions take place at the Cleveley Crescent Allotments near Hanger Lane tube station.
Our free 6-session Growing Wellbeing courses are designed to be a fun balance of learning how to grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables, while picking up tips and techniques on how to improve wellbeing. When participants complete this course, they are rewarded with a free group visit to Kew, and gain access to the more gardening-focused sessions we call Plot to Plate.
