The Cambridge Cyrenians Allotment Project provides specific horticulture training, supported work experience and a safe social environment for some of the most disadvantaged people in the city.
The Cambridge Cyrenians Community Garden works with local homeless people and runs on a therapeutic horticulture model across six full-sized allotment plots at the Whitehill Allotment Society, Elfleda Road. The project offers meaningful occupation for homeless people, helping to provide real work experience and developing new skills. However, for some it can be an essential therapeutic, social place to relax.
