Eden Rural Foyer, Penrith

Eden Rural Foyer Penrith is part of Impact Housing Association and provides supported living, training and an on-site cyber-cafe to young people leaving the care system. They wanted a garden to enjoy the out-of-doors and to learn to grow vegetables for the cafe.

Much of the labour was provided by student volunteers from the University of Cumbria, led by volunteer co-ordinator Emma Egglestone.
