The Children and Young Peoples (CYP): Gardening project

The Children and Young Peoples Gardening Project is aimed at Children and young People with Special Educational Needs, with the primary focus on those experiencing:

  • emotional and behavioural difficulties
  • mild learning difficulties
  • mild physical disabilities
  • bereavement
  • mild mental health issues
  • bullying
  • disrupted education
  • risk of offending
  • various other challenges/issues that may be impacting them

The project welcomes all children and young people who may or may not initially have an interest in gardening.

Their sessions involve gardening and garden related arts and crafts, which helps promote self-esteem, resilience and confidence, social skills, fine motor skills, attention restoration and many other benefits.
