We all have a part to play in building a welcoming and inclusive society.

We are a national network of community gardens, city farms and other green spaces where people in the asylum system are welcomed as valued contributors and co-creators.

For those seeking asylum in the UK, these spaces can offer vital and unique opportunities to find community, improve mental and physical health and to learn and share skills.

Our network works together to support and inspire more of the UK’s community growing spaces to become places of sanctuary.

Gardens of Sanctuary is a partnership between City of Sanctuary, Social Farms & Gardens and the Permaculture Association.
