This term we have introduced a ‘Community Garden Project’ One of our students has worked, mowing, pruning and tidying gardens for elderly people. This has been a great success providing care and support in the community together with building on social interaction and self esteem for students. We hope to offer this again next term
Volunteering at The Haven
At The Haven we have strong community links with outside organisations. Students are given the opportunity to volunteer time at the community garden or The House of Bread. The students that volunteer at the garden help with growing and cultivating vegetables. These vegetables are then donated to The House of Bread where our students help make bread and turn those vegetables into soup. This is then served up to vulnerable members of the local community.
