Gardens of Sanctuary Webinar – March 2021 


The following are useful videos from community gardens already welcoming refugees and asylum seekers:

The Grange – a 10 acre smallholding in West Norfolk

Growing Together Levenshulme – an allotment project in Greater Manchester

Sage Greenfingers – a community garden on allotments in Sheffield

Room to Heal – a therapeutic community for survivors of torture in North London

Anna Locke has created a permaculture design for a ‘refugee garden‘ using the layout and plant lists of the Babur Garden in Kabul as her inspiration.

It is designed so it can be scaled up or down to any size. Anna has kindly made her design freely available and her hope is that groups can use it to design and build gardens which are welcoming for refugees and asylum seekers.
