Organisation support

From 2015 SAGE has provided training and support to other organisations in setting up their own Social and Therapeutic Horticulture (STH) projects.

If you are interested, contact our office to discuss your needs.

Our offer

Via our Big Lottery grant we can support organisations develop their own sites via 10-12 sessions in which we:

  • help design the space
  • support clients, staff and volunteers create the space
  • run horticultural therapy sessions to pass across some core skills
  • help develop a programme of activity for after we leave

What we ask of beneficiary organisations

We expect the organisation to provide:

  • Space to garden!
  • A budget for gardening supplies, tools, appropriate clothing etc
  • At least one volunteer or staff member to train who can take over after we leave

If you are interested, contact our office to discuss your needs.

To date we have supported several organisations in setting up their own STH projects including:

  • An ASSIST House of destitute asylum seekers
  • Two recovery homes run by Sheffield Alcohol Support Service
  • Ashiana, a women’s refuge
  • Verdon street, a women-only well-being community project in the heart of Burngreave
  • South Yorkshire Housing Association
