Charity number


River Garden Auchincruive is a charity which opened in March 2018. It is a residential training and social enterprise development centre for people in the early stages of recovery from drug and/or alcohol addiction. It is modelled on the three most successful and transformative self-help organisations for people in recovery across the globe: San Patrignano (Italy),   Basta (Sweden) and Delancey Street (USA), which have been producing successful results helping people into long-term recovery, reintegrating into employment and mainstream society (70%-80%). 

We need your help!!
This Sunday River Garden will be taking part in the 2.6 Challenge and planting two sets of 26 fruit
trees in order to reinstate our historic Auchincruive orchard, while also helping to raise money to
help charities across the UK as well as our own.

Our aim is for River Garden to be a visitor destination for those  seeking to explore and enjoy the grounds. As a project we strive to breathe new life into the site and build strong links with the local community.   As part of their programme, residents at River Garden  help renew and restore the historic grounds,  cultivating the land to produce fruit and vegetables.  Residents are also involved in the setting up and running of various social enterprises, with each resident bring his own skills and experiences to these new endeavours.

Any donations made truly make a difference to us and all funds raised are used for the development and management of the gardens and related social enterprises.

Thank you!
