About Project

Our Working Wellies supported volunteering programme is available for adults and young people who have completed the equine-assisted ReStart programme with us.

We run separate adult and young people's groups and the emphasis is on having fun, making friends whilst learning or remembering skills around growing, cooking and eating healthy vegetables. The Wellies also keep the whole site spick and span – mucking out the horse barns and caring for the hens. Groups harvest, cook and eat together and take home plants and produce to continue at home.

Wellies maintain a Green Care diary to keep track of ups and downs and our Horticulture & Volunteering Leader makes sure everyone is in the right group and progressing towards their goals.

Surplus veg and veggie plants go to The Nest, our local food bank.

We are an accredited OCN London centre, and can provide Level E-3 qualifications in horticulture, environmental, animal care and life/employment skills.
