Who we are

Waste Not Want Not Nurturing Plants and People is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (number 07899087) that was set up in 2012.  It is a volunteer based social enterprise which uses horticulture as a therapeutic tool to assist in helping vulnerable adults (such as homeless people, ex addicts, ex-offenders, people with mental health issues or learning disabilities, and those recovering from a life crisis), together with help from other volunteers from the local community. Our aim is to create a friendly and supportive environment for positive activity where our volunteers can make new and supportive friendships and feel included in their local community.
