The Patchworking Garden Project
Who we are
Welcome to The Patchworking Garden Project established in Mole Valley in 2014 to bring positive change to people’s lives through the benefits of friendship and gardening.
- We operate in the stunning natural environment of a walled garden on the northern edge of Dorking with views to Box Hill.
- Run entirely by volunteers we offer gardening, crafting and the opportunity to learn new skills in a safe and friendly space – or simply to sit and enjoy nature and the company of others.
- We especially welcome those with a need because of physical or mental health conditions, learning disabilities, dementia, isolation or bereavement.
- We operate all year around and welcome around 70 supported volunteers to one of our 6 half-day sessions each week.
- Our Academy, which opened in 2019, has now relocated to upgraded facilities at Pixham. We have 8 students who want to work in horticulture, gaining both practical experience and City and Guilds Certificates.
Your donations will be put to good use helping with our running costs. We need to raise at least £12,000 a year for the Garden and around double that for the Academy, the latter mainly for the costs of specially trained and experienced tutors.
