Oasis gardening for health

Story by Jo Eckersley

Oasis Gardening, a gardening for wellbeing organisation, are joining Sage Greenfingers at their Grimesthorpe Allotments site. Oasis have been running sessions for eight years, growing vegetables on Sheffield Health and Social Care’s (SHSC) Fulwood House land.

When SHSC sold Fulwood House, Oasis had to look for a new home, and were delighted to partner with Sage Greenfingers. Oasis run friendly, fun, free and relaxing sessions where people of any ability can get stuck in and learn new skills in growing.

Anyone is welcome, particularly if you’ve experienced mental health difficulties or distress. It’s a lovely atmosphere where we grow food right from seed to plate, eating the fruits of our labour as we relax together. We really look forward to joining this vibrant community, and welcoming new members to the Tuesday sessions.

If you’re planning to come down let Fran or Luke know by calling 07926 097 027 or emailing oasis@sheffieldflourish.co.uk

We’d love to hear from more of Burngreave’s people about how they think the Burngreave Messenger could best serve the community, so we’ve created an opportunity for you to tell us what you’d like us to do.
