Welcome to Nature’s Haven

'Nature is but another name for health' ...Henry David Thoreau

 

Our mission is to enable our community to access and learn about the therapeutic benefits of gardening and nature within a haven that provides nourishment for the mind, body and soul.

We invite you to an outdoor retreat to escape the pressures of everyday life. We aim to give our visitors a sense of strength and protection with the intention of providing a more tranquil state of mind.

We continue to search for suitable sites for our gardens.  If you have land and want to donate (please, please, please!), lease or sell then please get in touch.

About Nature’s Haven

'The shortest road to recovery leads through a garden'....  Robert Myers

Nature's Haven is filled with a variety of plants that promote a sense of well being and hope. Our garden designs are based on the principles of a physic garden, focusing on the plants' inherent healing properties.

It is a place of refuge where peace, healing, distraction and stress relief is promoted. 

Nature's Haven creates, maintains & continues to develop healing gardens to generate an abundance of positivity. The gardens are restorative and yet enabling too, allowing the visitor to 'simply be', reflect & be fully present in the moment and/or actively engage in gardening through our social therapeutic horticultural programmes.

 

We provide events and opportunities to engage as many people in our community as possible as we nurture and promote a feeling of connectedness.

The gardens are a feast for the senses with sound, colour, fragrance, movement, texture and taste. The beds and borders are a mix flowers, herbs and vegetables, focusing on heritage and disease resistant varieties. The garden designs include a series of defined outdoor spaces,  with fire pit and water features to encourage as much biodiversity as possible and aid contemplation. 

We champion sustainability and we are guided by permaculture  principles thus avoiding synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides.

The gardens are designed with accessibility in mind.  Wheelchairs are able to access all areas of the garden and the paths and raised beds will help the visually impaired navigate their way around. We also have adapted tools to assist with any mobility issues.

We can't wait for you to come and enjoy our gardens.
