Waste-Not-Want Not ​​​​​​​

is a new partnership for us and we have our first five boys visiting on April 21st, 2021.  They are a horticulturally based social enterprise and community interest company which uses horticulture as a therapeutic tool to assist young people.   Their aim is to create a friendly and supportive environment for positive activity where the boys can make new and supportive friendships and feel included in their local community.  Waste-Not-Want-Not seeks and gains donations from organisations including B&Q, Country Gardens, Europlants, Ayletts, A1 Nurseries and members of the public – they give them their unwanted plants which would otherwise end up in landfill. They nurture them and sell them at the nursery. They also receive unwanted used items including fencing panels, mesh wire and other materials which they recycle and put to good use.
