Our mission is to design and build stylish sustainable gardens

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.
