The Crafty Gardener

The Crafty Gardener is a Community Interest Company which provides day opportunities, skills development, therapeutic, health and employment related support through horticultural, crafts, enterprise and other activities.

We are currently offering on-line activities as we are closed for face to face activities due to Covid 19 restrictions.

 

We usually deliver a range of group activities at two sites -

  • Glyn Bank, 13 Lloyd Street in Whitmore Reans
  • As well as the Boundary Way Allotments Warstones, WV4 4NT

Both venues are not generally open to the general public unless by invitation.

Activities include cookery and life skills, arts and crafts, music, news teams and local project work linked to the wider community.

The majority of our horticulture activities  take place at our allotment site at Boundary Way in Warstones. This site provides a community setting with outside growing space and access to the sites buildings to provide undercover room for activities in poor weather.

We make and then sell some of our products at craft and plant fairs and other organised events. This gives participants opportunities to be involved in a range of activities, to experience new places and to meet new people.

A typical day session would be from 10am until 3.00, days and times can be flexible and extended to suit the people involved.

Adults and young people referred to the Crafty Gardener day and therapeutic opportunities usually have a learning disability, autsim and/or mental health needs and live in Wolverhampton or South Staffordshire.

The Crafty Gardener is also happy to look at other individual or group arrangements, simply contact us to discuss these options.

The Crafty Gardener can deliver activities in community venues across the Black Country, Shropshire and South Staffordshire on request. Please contact us to discuss these options.
