Create a community garden for our Huddersfield supported housing residents, who are formerly homeless, recovering from addictions and trauma survivors.

Huddersfield Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Happydays UK offers accommodation and support for people who are trying to regain their independence after having been street homeless. We believe that working and living as a community can help our residents to build their self-esteem and motivation. We have 12 residents in central Huddersfield who share a garden area, and we would love to start a gardening project with them. This would give them horticultural skills and a sense of achievement; it would create a space both for socialising and for sanctuary; and growing edible produce would create a further opportunity to extend their cooking skills.

What we'll deliver:

  • A small shed
  • Basic gardening tools for 10 people
  • 4 planters
  • 3 benches

Why it's a great idea:

The residents will benefit from exercise, having a new interest, learning new skills, working as a group, being close to nature, growing their own food, and having a pleasant place to spend time.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the equipment and plants
