Roots to Growth is a brand new organisation that is setting up a therapeutic market garden on a six-acre site near Storrington. They are in the process of becoming a charity.  Roots to Growth is hoping to build a supportive, creative, therapeutic community space for disadvantaged and vulnerable groups to flourish alongside the local community.

Roots to Growth is looking for a team of volunteers to help support the project to grow from a small group to a fully-fledged charity.

The Magic Garden is a community allotment in Hollingdean which enables families with disabled children access to an allotment by providing regular sessions for parents and carers to meet, dig, plant and share.  They provide a destination that understands the needs of families with disabled children and activities which are fun, therapeutic and give a sense of achievement and well-being.
