• Helmsley Walled Garden - Freshly Picked Gooseberries

Who we support

Here at Helmsley Walled Garden we aim to bring together people with disabilities, ill health, vulnerable or suffering from isolation and support and develop them through gardening.

Working in small, social groups, our supported volunteers learn practical skills, build their confidence and make new friends.

Supported volunteers work with the horticultural therapy team to grow and look after the plants we sell here at the Plant Centre.

People are referred to us by their GP or by social services and some come independently; we welcome them all.
