About Urban Growth:
In London, 2 million people suffer with mental ill health every year, but only 25% of them will receive any form of treatment. The is where Urban Growth NW1, steps in. A horticultural therapy project based in Camden Town, we provide support for people with severe and enduring mental health issues. Based at a 3 acre site, we use horticultural training to help our members gain valuable vocational skills in organic vegetable production, while supporting them to improve their mental health with a holistic approach. Each member joins us for six months, much longer than most mental health projects can offer, and every member takes an active role in the horticultural management of the site - from sowing seeds, to nurturing plants and harvesting crops.

Our vision, is of a society that gives those with mental ill health the chance to recover at a pace that suits them, and thus makes any potential relapse less likely. Sadly though, funding for long term projects like ours is hard to come by. Currently we are running 2 days a week, but we have big ideas for our site, and would love to expand our project to 5 days a week. This way, we can help more people, engage the wider community of Camden in food growing, and offer onsite cooking sessions to our members; taking our produce from plot to plate to promote healthy eating.
