Plot 22 is a registered charity running a community allotment which “offers a place of relaxation, recovery, acceptance and belonging to people who may be experiencing difficulty in their lives”. It aims to improve people’s wellbeing through involvement in therapeutic gardening; working together with others on positive, healthy and outdoor projects; and growing, cooking, and eating together. Based in Hove, Plot 22 offers various projects, aimed at vulnerable groups of people.
In February 2017, the Foundation has contributed £3,000 towards Plot 22 developing new regular sessions. The charity will work in partnership with specialist agencies to start groups working with female survivors of sexual violence; and with people living with dementia. Both groups aim to offer improved physical, mental and emotional well-being, and provide one-to-one support in a safe and nurturing environment.
