Hope Gardening

Hope has a range of exciting community gardening projects

  • Our tool recycling project
  • Therapeutic gardening for our homeless service users
  • We maintain a community garden for local residents. 
  • Our allotment gardens where we grow vegetables, salad and fruit for the Hope Foodclub and Hope Day centre.
  • We offer basic training in horticulture for people who are looking to develop a career and new skills.

We distribute food through community centres and hubs in Northampton as part of our foodclub project.

STOP PRESS: Jonathan (Joe) Cummings has joined as as our gardener. We welcome him to the project!

We also are looking for a volunteer with management experience to offer strategic leadership and advice. Contact us for more details and to discuss.

Our projects involve urban agriculture - greening urban spaces and growing food on neglected urban land.

We welcome donations of vegetable seeds, plants, gloves and overalls

We need volunteers to help in our growing spaces in Northampton.
